A new tower is set to rise above Inner Harbor.
The Baltimore Business Journal reports Comstock Partners’ 430-foot building will be located at 300 E. Pratt St. The building is slated to feature space for a hotel, condos and 20,000 square feet of retail space. No word on what shops are coming yet.
During a presentation last week, BBJ reports that Gregory A. Luongo, vice president of building designer HKS Architects said the new tower is designed to “make a statement about the future.” In search of what that might mean, we consulted the list of the city’s tallest buildings. Turns out, the 430 ft. proposal makes it about 10 ft. taller than nearby 100 E. Pratt St., and 25 ft. taller than the World Trade Center.
But it won’t be the world’s tallest equilateral pentagonal building. That will still belong to the World Trade Center.
