The Packing House

A Community Asset in Cambridge, Maryland

Cross Street Partners, in partnership with ESLC, will re-purpose the historic Phillips Packing Company, Factory F in Cambridge, MD. Building on the Eastern Shore’s deep tradition of agricultural and fishing assets, the $23,000,000, 60,000 square foot historic Phillips Packing House Building will be designed to support and grow regional economic opportunities connected to agriculture, aquaculture, environmental technologies, and tourism. The Packing House will house a synergistic mix of tech and creative entrepreneurs, food production and food related retail/eateries as well as a 2-story, light-filled open atrium space for continuous public programs and private events.
