It occupies the parking lots and space created from the demolition of a former cold storage facility at the old Phillips Headquarters. The building surrounds an exterior courtyard that will feature a pool. The building will also have a gym and rooftop deck.

A 600-car garage was recently constructed adjacent to Porter Street Apartments. A new office building and hotel will soon begin construction on the other side of the garage.

28 Walker has also reached an agreement with South Baltimore Little League on more than $250,000 in improvements to the adjacent baseball complex.

Locust Point – Alta47

The Bozzuto Group and Scott Plank’s War Horse Cities broke ground on Alta 47 earlier this year. This $23-million, 47-townhome redevelopment project is located at 1520 Beason St. in Locust Point at the former home of Perishable Deliveries Inc. (PDI), which relocated to Halethorpe. The site includes properties on the 1500 and 1600 blocks of Beason St., as well as the 1500 block of Cuba St. Construction on the project started in recent months.

The townhomes will be constructed in three continuous phases, starting with the parcel on the 1600 block of Beason St. These homes are nearing completion. Additional phases will include 24 homes on the 1500 block of Beason St. and 11 homes on the 1500 block of Cuba St.

The soon-to-open retail will include a 3,000 sq. ft. fitness studio for The Bar Method, a 2,000 sq. ft. coffee and craft beer restaurant named Amber, and a Korean fried chicken restaurant and bar named Jazz + Soju. More retail tenants will be announced in the future.
