2001 Aliceanna Street, the 3.5 acre lot that sits along the Fells Point Waterfront, is being proposed for apartments and townhomes by owner Elm Street Development.
It is currently the site of a warehouse and a parking lot being rented out by the National Aquarium for large fish tanks.
This plan would convert the existing 184,962 SF building into a parking garage. It would then build three stories atop the warehouse that would hold 277 apartments. On the adjacent surface parking lot, the developer plans a mix of 23 townhouses and condos, says Jim Mobley, a project manager for Elm Street Development.
Baltimore’s latest up-and-coming apartment complex, 414 Light Street, will have a “unique mix of modern, rustic, artistic chic and urban cutting edge” says interior designer Kari Whitman. Whitman, whose clients range from Jessica Alba and Kristen Bell to the royal family of Saudi Arabia, thinks the apartment complex will help “change Baltimore a lot, boasting timeless, modern, green and artistic building elements.”
With the first tenants set to move in in March, the leasing office is feeling enthusiastic. The complex will offer features such as a saltwater pool, two outdoor chef’s kitchens and a large outdoor movie screen all overlooking the waterfront on one end and Camden Yards on the other end.
414 Light Street, former home of McCormick & Co. Inc., saw a flurry of new activity on Tuesday, March 15th. Groundbreaking for the apartment tower has been much anticipated. The 44 story building is hoped to be completed by 2018. The building will boast rents starting at $1,750 and climbing all the way to $8,000 per month- which will hopefully bring a diverse group of residents. The first floor is expected to house several ‘white tablecloth’ restaurants.
