Photo Tour of the Harborplace Pavilions at the Inner Harbor

| March 11, 2022 | 0 Comments

The Harborplace pavilions at the Inner Harbor have been stuck in receivership since June 2019 and the vacancies are starting to pile up. The Light Street Pavilion now just has two tenants left. There are also a number of vacancies in the Pratt Street Pavilion.

Ashkenazy Acquisition Corporation took over ownership of the Light Street and Pratt Street Pavilions at Harborplace in 2013 and began renovations in 2017. But, the renovations dragged on and tenants began to leave the complex in recent years. This included Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., H&M, Johnny Rockets, Crabby Jacks, Banana Republic, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Philly Pretzel Factory, Urban Outfitters, Build-A-Bear, M&S Grille, Noodles & Company, Five Guys, and La Tasca.

Businesses that remain open at Harborplace are Hooters and Neighborhoods Urban Goods at the Light Street Pavilion, and The Cheesecake Factory, Uno Chicago Grill, Tir Na Nog Irish Restaurant & Pub, IT’SUGAR, Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls, Crystal Cove, Crepe Lena, Tobacco Etc., Bombay Beadz, and recently-opened Life in Charm City in the Pratt Street Pavilion.

Waterfront Partnership President Laurie Schwartz told last fall the ownership situation at the shopping pavilions will be resolved “hopefully by the end of year.” She added, “it’s coming.”
