Restaurant space available in Highlandtown

Earlier this week, we received the following email in the Baltimore Fishbowl editor’s inbox. The author, a young real estate developer, alerts us to a new restaurant space available in Highlandtown, and asks for our thoughts.  We thought we’d put it to you, readers: What kind of restaurant do you want to  see in Highlandtown? A pizza joint? Asian Fusion? Farm-to-table?  One request from us: no chains! Let us know what you think in the comments.   

I am an avid reader of Baltimore Fishbowl, especially relating to commercial real estate development in the city. I wanted to bring to your attention a new development project. My firm, MacKenzie Retail LLC, is representing a very unique restaurant opportunity for lease in the Highlandtown Main Street area. As a resident of Brewers Hill and a foodie, I believe this space provides the perfect opportunity for a new and innovative restaurant concept in the growing Highlandtown community.

[The space is in the] Highlandtown Library redevelopment project, spearheaded by Southeast Community Development Corp. The development group is very hands on with the project, and is excited to bring a new restaurant concept to the neighborhood. They are willing to provide significant “build out” allowance to the tenant. A new liquor license will be available from the Baltimore City Liquor Board following build-out of space. Occupancy of the 3,000 sq. ft space is expected to be approximately 90, depending on exact layout. Potentially available to the tenant will be 40+ parking spaces in the adjacent M&T Bank parking lot on Highland Ave. As we all know, this is a rare find in Baltimore City.

  1. How about a Woodberry Kitchen II? Or Founding Farmers II (from DC)? Or a great steakhouse like The Prime Rib. Lastly, a place like Busboys and Poets.

    • I agree, a Woodberry Kitchen would kill at that location, but I don’t think Spike Gjerde wants another venture…

  2. I agree with the others: a diner/cafe that reflects Highlandtown as well as City Cafe reflects Mt. Vernon. I would be there everyday.
