McHenry Row Retail Nearing Return to 100% Leased

| November 23, 2021 | 0 Comments

The retail at mixed-used development McHenry Row in Locust Point took a substantial hit during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the complex is nearing a return to 100 percent leased according to Owner Mark Sapperstein of 28 Walker. Several new businesses opened this fall and two others are in the works.

Since the pandemic began, McHenry Row lost Hair Cuttery, Fresh Cleaners, Charm City Run, The Urban Oyster, Massage Envy, Rev Cycle Studio, and World of Beer.

The Hair Cuttery space was filled by Studio 921 last month after it relocated from the Foundry on Fort Avenue; Mr. Lee’s Dry Cleaning filled the vacancy left by Fresh Cleaners in February; Yes Chef Marketplace opened at the vacant The Urban Oyster space last week; European Wax Center and NovaCare Rehabilitation filled the empty Massage Envy space last winter; and Tribe Cycle opened in the former Rev Cycle Studio in October.

The two spaces that remain vacant are the former Charm City Run and the former World of Beer spaces. Sapperstein told that a lease is getting finalized for the former Charm City Run space, and that 28 Walker is nearing a letter of intent for the World of Beer space.

28 Walker is also keeping busy with additional investments in South Baltimore as construction is underway at the Banner Row townhome development in partnership with Ryan Homes. The company also just announced it’s under contract on the 25-acre former Locke Insulators facility in Port Covington.
