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.
After returning home to Baltimore after 20 years, one man tells his story of how the famously blue-collar town has been transformed by it’s younger generation bringing farm-to-table dining and sleek waterfront projects while still maintaining its original charm.
When you think of the Inner Harbor, there are several iconic images that come to mind. The abstract, angular National Aquarium, the smoke stacks from the old Power Plant that is now Barnes and Noble, and maybe the Constellation- to name a few. Through all of these grand, Baltimore icons, the one thing that’s missing is flourishing green space. Luckily, through the efforts of the National Aquarium, Piers 3 and 4 will soon see more Urban wetlands, improvements to existing parks, and interactive stations to enhance watershed understanding.
