The prominent intersection of Pratt Streets and Light Streets in downtown Baltimore could soon look a whole lot different. There is an existing wide-open brick promenade on Pratt Street that developers have their eyes on. The brick area is targeted for a new “bump-out” development that will house a 3 level, 23,000 sq. ft. retail and restaurant offering.
A design by Corporate Office Properties Trust has been accepted. They are the owners of the 35 story Transamerica Tower next to the promenade. The design is over at the mayor’s office for other approvals. The plan includes retail, commercial and restaurant and a rooftop deck that will overlook the busy area.
“You’ll see a lot more of this type of infill development on unused pieces in Baltimore’s heart of downtown core,” said Gerard DiRuggiero, Principal Broker of UrbanLand Company. “This is right near the Inner Harbor and is a high traffic spot.”
