Sixty-two percent of the residences have been leased in Harbor Point’s first apartment project, No. 1305 Dock Street.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and developer Michael Beatty popped two “champagne” bottles that sprayed confetti over a crowd that gathered yesterday for the grand opening.
The 103 apartments occupy floors three to seven of the 20-story, $270 million Exelon Tower, which will house about 1,500 Exelon employees when it is completed later this year. Apartment rents start at $1,800 per month, and 45 people already have moved in.
The residences wrap around and conceal a garage on the lower levels of the tower. Observers can tell which floors of the glass tower are residential because they have operable windows, while the office levels don’t.
Beatty Harvey Coco was the architect of the tower, and Patrick Sutton Associates was the interior designer for 1305 Dock Street. Beatty Development has purchased works by nine local artists: Rodney Carroll, Jim Condron, Karl Connolly, Dan Dudrow, Carol Frost, David Hess, Jonathan Maxwell, Nicole Mueller, and Michael Weiss.
Rawlings-Blake, who toured several of the apartments and lingered to chat with guests, noted that mixed-use developments such as the Exelon Tower are helping Baltimore meet her goal of drawing 10,000 families to the city in a decade.
“It thrills me to see this project and so many more that I see helping … realize this dream of making Baltimore more vibrant,” she said. “We are a city with an incredible future.”
