b.well Connected Health Opens Office at Stadium Square

| March 15, 2023 | 0 Comments

Digital health company b.well® Connected Health has opened an 8,000 sq. ft. office at the 145 W. Ostend St. building in the Stadium Square development in South Baltimore. It is the company’s first office.

b.well was founded in 2015 by Kristen Valdez and now has approximately 120 employees. Approximately 45 of these employees will work from the new office in South Baltimore.

The new office will provide flexibility for its “hybrid work culture.” b.well worked with architecture firm The Verbe Partnership to design its new office.

“Our company has operated primarily on a virtual basis since its inception and throughout our consistent growth, but we always recognized the importance of establishing a true corporate headquarters space to enhance our cohesiveness and foster our innovative corporate culture,” said Alicia Raymond, b.well’s vice president of people and culture, in a press release. “The Covid pandemic pushed back our plans for several years, but we knew we wanted to make Baltimore our home. When it came time to choose the right building and to design the perfect office space, it was important to create a safe, employee-centric, collaborative, and fun environment.”

Raymond added, “We choose 145 W. Ostend Street because we wanted to provide our employees with a vibrant workplace experience. There is considerable energy in the Federal Hill neighborhood, with its eclectic array of shops and restaurants walkable from the building. It was also important to lead by example and make a statement by bringing a new corporate headquarters to Baltimore. The City has tremendous amenities to offer, we believe in its future and we want other companies to do the same.”

145 W. Ostend St. was developed by Caves Valley Partners (CVP). CVP Partner Arsh Mirmiran told SouthBMore.com the 72,000 sq. ft. office building is 95 percent leased and will be 100 percent leased in “a month or so.”

Mirmiran also noted additional phases of the mixed-use project are currently delayed due to high interest and rising construction costs.
