…where casual, fun and fine dining, great places to live in newly rebuilt condominiums/apartments, great places to shop and lively entertainment create a wonderful place to be. Of course, don’t forget the proximity to the waterfront and downtown Baltimore in this walkabout neighborhood. Imagine the economic health of the Inner Harbor being combined with the rich history, culture and tradition of East Baltimore. A win-win for sure.
The area of Baltimore once called Inner Harbor East is now simply called “Harbor East.” It is a truly wonderful example of mixed-use urban development/redevelopment. A half billion dollars worth of construction is nearing completion and offers all the amenities for which modern urban dwellers seek. Some may use the term “urban chic” to describe being a part of this neighborhood (in fact, there is an upscale shop with that name nearly in the center of all the action).
With a dozen square blocks of the ultimate in City Life, this desirable neighborhood is bounded by Fleet Street on the north; S. Caroline Street to the east; Lancaster Street, the Promenade and waters of the Patapsco River to the south; and the Jones Falls (stream, not expressway) and the Promenade to the west. Aliceanna Street (west-east) bisects the neighborhood horizontally and provides a walkway parallel to the Promenade along the water.
Walking in Inner Harbor East appears as a focus of the urban structure allowing residents and visitors easy access to the waterfront near the high-rise condos/apartments, offices and newly built hotels, such as the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel. Retail business includes a modern (and popular) market, up-scale shops with an urban theme, a “Landmark” 7-screen theater (get your movie tickets now), and a pleasing variety of eateries. Urban sprawl is no longer in vogue; instead, this implementation of creative urban development is pedestrian friendly, uses less land, is environmentally friendly and brings a valuable neighborhood to Baltimore City.
