Harbor Square to Replace Old CVS

| June 11, 2012 | 0 Comments

We officially have to retire the name “Old CVS” now that the building has been demolished and construction is set to begin for Harbor Square.  The building came down last week and even got the attention of the area when a fire broke out during its demolition, which was quickly put out.  Stavrou Builders is set to begin the 10 townhome development which will start with utility work on the property before construction of the homes can begin.

Harbor Square will feature 10 three-story townhomes – five will be on Fort Ave. and five will be on Birckhead St.  Each home will feature fourth story wet bars with attached rooftop decks, one-car garage plus a one car parking pad, three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.  All of the 1,950 square foot homes will come fully loaded with granite in the kitchens and bathrooms, hardwood floors everywhere but the bedrooms, stainless steel appliances and more and will be priced at $399,999.  There are a few upgradeable features like hardwood floors in the bedrooms and fireplaces that can bring the price up to approximately $410,000.  The first floor will feature bedroom number one as well as a bathroom and the garage; the second floor will feature the kitchen, dining room, living room and powder room; and the third floor will feature the master bedroom/bathroom as well as the third bedroom and full bathroom.

SouthBMore.com caught up with Ari Gerzowski, the listing agent for the homes which are currently available for purchase.  “This is the third Baltimore City development I’ve done with Stavrou and they do a phenomenal job.  The market is on an upswing, so we felt this was a great time to begin the project.  The homes are priced to sell and we are looking to pre-sell most of the units,” said Gerzowski.  The other two projects were Fells Crossing in Fells Point and Cannery Square in Canton.

After nearly five years without any new townhome construction in the Federal Hill, Riverside or South Baltimore neighborhoods, this marks the second project to break ground in the last few weeks, joining Steve Strohecker’s four-townhome project on the 1600 block of Light St.  Several other properties have also been eyed for new townhomes. We’ll see if these two projects create a boost in the new townhome market in South Baltimore.
