There’s just something about a great view. Whether it’s the city skyline or the sun shimmering over the harbor, it feels good to start and close the day gazing at something gorgeous. At 2 East Wells, a newly constructed apartment building in South Baltimore, near Federal Hill, residents never have to go far to find the picturesque. From the multiple rooftop decks to the apartments themselves, the building offers some of the best views the city has to offer.
“People are falling in love with the views,” says property manager Cristina Istrate. “You can see the harbor, the stadium, everything. It is really stunning and everyone who has toured our community has agreed.”
People also can’t get enough of the building’s fabulous industrial chic look. Cool light fixtures illuminate the lobby and on the exterior, smooth dark metal finishes add edge to the building’s look. Inside and out, 2 East Wells embraces an urban style that balances polish with nods to Baltimore’s industrial past.
The building’s interior design combines edgy industrial artwork and furniture with bright pops of color and wood accents. Twisted metal, natural wood and funky furniture and artwork give the space a fun, modern vibe that’s unlike any other apartment community in the Baltimore area.
2 East Wells is pet-friendly community that will offer a resident-controlled access, concierge services, residents guest parking, and 1st floor retail. An attached garage, with direct access to each floor, provides ample parking and Zipcars are also readily available for residents, making driving in and out of the city an easy option.
Cars are convenient, but the building’s South Baltimore neighborhood is also very walkable – and a lot of fun. “SoBo is just a short walk to the Ravens’ and Orioles’ stadiums and all the bars and the restaurants that this area has to offer,” says Istrate.
A state of the art rooftop fitness center and lounge provide easy access to 2 East Wells’ amazing views. Other building amenities include a “Meet Up Hub” with a coffee bar, fireplace, big screen televisions and free Wi-Fi, package lockers, bicycle storage, and an interior courtyard with hammocks and a beautifully landscaped garden.
The apartments themselves are dazzling, with spacious floor plans and, in many, oversized wall to wall windows that maximize views. High ceilings make the rooms feel even larger and perks like large closets, with plenty of storage, are amazing finds in the city.
High-end finishes, including granite countertops in the kitchens and baths, high efficiency stainless steel appliances and sturdy wood cabinets and doors, give the “industrial” look a luxurious edge. In recognition of today’s environmental sensibilities, 2 East Wells has been built to LEED Silver standards. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is an internationally recognized green building certification system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). In order to be certified, the community must achieve standards for high efficiency heating and cooling systems, energy efficient appliances, high efficiency hot water heating, energy efficient lighting, and indoor environment quality, just to name a few.
Options include studio, one bedroom and two bedroom floor plans, ranging from 539 to over 1,325 square feet and rents starting at $1,510 per month. As part of its commitment to the neighborhood and city, 2 East Wells has established a “preferred employer” program. Employees of certain local and national businesses / corporations may be eligible for discounts on monthly rent.
