| March 16, 2017 | 0 Comments

Real estate development is always very active in Locust Point as many former industrial sites are converted to residential and mixed-use developments.

Check out the progress of projects currently under construction:

Anthem House – Locust Point: 275 Apartments, 19,000 sq. ft. of retail 

Bozzuto, War Horse, and Solstice Partners began construction on Anthem House in February 2015 at a former GE Electric Site at 900 E. Fort Ave. in Locust Point. The $80 million project will include 275 apartments, 449 parking spaces, 14,000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail, as well as 5,000 sq. ft. of rooftop/sky lounge retail space. The project is nearing completion. No retail tenants have been announced at this time.

Anthem House II is expected to begin construction this year at the former Rallo’s parking lot across the street on Lawrence St. The five-story apartment building will have 52 apartments.

McHenry Row II Apartments – Locust Point: 224 Apartments

28 Walker Development continues to grow McHenry Row with a new 224-unit apartment building, which is currently under construction. It is occupying the parking lots and space created from the demolition of a former cold storage facility at the old Phillips Headquarters. A 600-car garage was recently constructed, and a new office building and hotel have been proposed.

Additionally, in Phase II of McHenry Row, 28 Walker has proposed new six-story, 110,000 sq. ft. office building and an eight-story, 119-room Marriott hotel at the site of a parking lot east of the Harris Teeter.

Key’s Overlook Phase II – Locust Point: 25 townhomes

Phase 2 of the project, which will includes 25 homes and a small plaza on the lot northwest of Silo Point, has been completed. Key’s Overlook has 53 homes total.

Alta47 – Locust Point: 47 townhomes

Construction has started at Alta47, a project which will bring 47 new-construction townhomes with garages to the former Perishable Deliveries Inc. (PDI) site at 1520 Beason St. in Locust Point. The site was once a public library prior to PDI. The site of the development includes properties on the 1500 and 1600 blocks of Beason St. as well as the 1500 block of Cuba St. PDI recently relocated to Halethorpe. The project team is Bozzuto and War Horse.

Infrastructure work and framing on the first row of townhomes is currently in process. An official groundbreaking for this community will take place in April.
