Burgerim Will Not Open at Anthem House in Locust Point

| March 17, 2020 | 0 Comments

National fast-casual chain Burgerim will no longer be opening at Anthem House in Locust Point. It was announced in June that Burgerim would be the first tenant at the 1,500 sq. ft. retail space at the corner of E. Fort Ave. and Lawrence St.

The Anthem House project was developed by War Horse Cities in partnership with Bozzuto and Solstice Partners. War Horse Executive Vice President of Business Development & Marketing Amy Larkin told SouthBMore.com in an email: “Due to issues on their side, they do not plan to open. We are however hoping we have news to announce in the upcoming months on another tenant.”

Restaurant Business has tracked the struggles of Burgerim and reported it told franchisees in December that the company was considering a bankruptcy filing.

War Horse also owns the former Rallo’s/Big Matty’s Diner across the street at 838 E. Fort Ave. The former Thornton’s Pub liquor license was transferred to the building in 2015 as Thornton’s was converted into a Locust Point residence. Construction will kick off this month to turn the 4,064 sq. ft., two-story building into a new restaurant. Larkin said they are thrilled to get this project stated and will share more information soon.

Polished Day Spa is currently under construction on its 2,000 sq. ft. space at Anthem House. Anthem House also includes restaurants Amber, Limoncello, and Jazz & Soju, as well as fitness studio The Bar Method.

War Horse and Bozzuto partnered on A2 by Anthem House across the street where Pure Raw Juice is under construction on a second location in South Baltimore.
