Silo Point, formerly known as the Baltimore and Ohio Locust Point Grain Terminal Elevator, is a residential complex converted from 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). The silo was built by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad in 1923-1924, with a capacity of 3.8 billion bushels.[4] In 2009 it had been converted from a grain elevator to a condominium tower containing 24 floors and 228 condominiums by Turner Development Group and architect Parameter, Inc.[5][6]

The grain elevator was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.[1]
