Prime waterfront Fells Point property eyed for 300 apartments, townhomes

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.
