Silo Point, formerly known as the Baltimore and Ohio Locust Point Grain Terminal Elevator, is a high-rise grain elevator on the edge of the Locust Point neighborhood in Baltimore, Maryland. When the original grain elevator was completed in 1923, it was the largest and fastest in the world. The grain elevator rises to 300 feet (94 meters), containing 24 floors and 228 condominiums. The silo was built by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1923-1924, with a capacity of 3.8 billion bushels.[4] Construction was completed in 2009 by Turner Development Group and architect Parameter, Inc. from a grain elevator into a condominium tower, which is expected to contain over 228 condos.
