The Gay & Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore (GLCCB) announced that the building at 241 W. Chase St., which has been the headquarters for the 36-year-old organization since 1980, has been sold. Closing took place on May 31.
In a statement released by the board of directors, the decision to sell the building was made to address ongoing community concerns with the inadequacy of the GLCCB’s present space to meet the goals outlined in its strategic plan.
The board is “assessing a variety of options for relocation to meet the growing and changing needs of the community. The 241 W. Chase St. building is old, in need of continuous repair, has limited accessibility and sorely needs to be updated to accommodate the community needs, including ADA compliance all of which have significant costs associated with them.”
