Harbor East – Baltimore’s Gem

A great place to visit: the Landmark Theatre, numerous boutiques, and lots of restaurants. Anchored by a beautiful monument to honor those who lost their lives in the Katyn massacre.

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor contains some of the city’s most desirable retail and residential real estate. The most exclusive waterfront neighborhood is Harbor East, occupying 70 acres of downtown waterfront, covering the area from the Fells Point neighborhood to the National Aquarium.

The Inner Harbor East area used to be filled with decaying warehouses left over from the industrial boom in the 20th century. In the 1980s Baltimore city officials hatched a scheme to reinvigorate the entire area. Harbor East went on to become one of the most successful urban renaissances on the East Coast of America.

Harbor East, surrounded (nearly) on three sides by water, is on target to become the most prestigious commercial/retail/residential center in the Baltimore/Washington area. It has everything to offer in its 10 million square feet of mixed-use space. Class-A office space, business-class hotels, restaurants at the street level, entertainment venues, retail outlets, all in distinguished architecture. Waterfront pedestrian walkways, buzzing with strollers, cyclists, joggers and street performers, and an eleven-acre public Harbor Point Park, provides the ‘glue” that binds the neighborhood together.

For entertainment there is a new 7-screen Landmark Theatre, and the Maryland Athletic Club, and nearby are the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, and the NFL Ravens and MLB Orioles Stadiums.

For accommodations there are ample hotels offering 3,000+ rooms, including the Residences Baltimore, the fabulous Four Seasons Hotel, and the flagship Marriott Waterfront Hotel, which has parking space for 1,000 vehicles, and 50,000 square feet of conference space.

Enjoy a stroll along the 200-slip marina with 2,500 feet of tree-lined, landscaped walkways, linking directly to the 8-mile Harbor Promenade.

City Sports, Urban Chic, Starbucks and Arhaus Furniture are a small selection of the many retailers offering a vibrant shopping experience to Harbor East visitors and residents. In all there are more than 1 million square feet of fashion, lifestyle and specialty retailers to be found.

Morgan Stanley, John Hopkins, Laureate Education, Citi-Smith Barney and T. Rowe Price are some of the premier businesses that occupy part of Harbor East’s nearly 3 million square feet of class-A office space. Legg Mason chose to relocate their global headquarters from the tallest building in Baltimore to Harbor East.

For fine dining Harbor East offers Baltimore’s largest selection of quality cuisine, including Charleston, Cindy Wolf’s five star restaurant.

Finally, all this urban renaissance is environmentally-friendly. The replacement of decaying warehouses, factories and wharves with distinctive new architecture was planned and designed with sustainability and accessibility in mind. All phases of development will conform to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards.
