Anthem House’s retail is now fully leased as Polished Day Spa and Burgerim will be taking the final two first-floor retail spaces in the $100-million Locust Point building. Anthem House opened in 2015 and has 292 apartments, 449 parking garage spaces, and 20,000 sq. ft. of ground floor retail. Both Polished and Burgerim are the first tenants to occupy their respective spaces.

The Anthem House project was developed by War Horse Cities in partnership with Bozzuto and Solstice Partners.

Polished will occupy an approximately 2,000 sq. ft. space facing Lawrence St. at the corner of E. Fort Ave. and Lawrence St. Polished has another location in Brewers Hill and offers manicures, pedicures, massages, and waxing. Polished is working through the permitting and planning process right now and hopes to open before the end of the year, according to War Horse Cities Director of Design and Development Jim Mills.

Burgerim will open in an approximately 1,500 sq. ft. space facing E. Fort Ave. at the corner of E. Fort Ave. and Lawrence St. Burgerim is a franchise that started in California and is projected to have nearly 500 stores in the United States by the end of 2019. Burgerim currently has regional locations in Owings Mill, Wheaton, Washington D.C., Arlington, and Falls Church. Burgerim is working through the permitting, planning, and design process right now and hopes to open in early-2020, according to Mills.

Burgerim offers a large menu of burgers, chicken sandwiches, chicken wings, chicken strips, and milkshakes. Burgerim has 3oz slider burgers that can be ordered in two- and three-packs, as well as larger quarter pound and third pound burgers. Burgerim has Angus beef, dry-aged beef, Spanish beef, Hawaiian salmon, falafel, and Greek lamb burgers along with grilled chicken and crispy chicken sandwiches.

Limoncello, which is also opening at Anthem House along Lawrence St., is looking at a July soft opening, according to Mills. Construction continues in the future 120-seat bar and restaurant.

Restaurants Amber and Jazz & Soju, as well as fitness studio The Bar Method, opened in retail spaces along E. Fort Ave. in Anthem House last year.

War Horse and Bozzuto partnered on A2 by Anthem House across the street where Pure Raw Juice will be opening a second location in South Baltimore. War Horse also owns the former Rallo’s/Big Matty’s Diner at 838 E. Fort Ave. across the street. Renovation has been underway for a new restaurant in the 4,064 sq. ft., two-story building. It will have back patio outdoor seating. A tenant has not yet been announced for this space.
