Harbor East: A Profile

“Harbor East” is the buzzword around Baltimore when it comes to the hip, the new, and ‘the latest’ for a great night out. However, what you may not be aware of are the great living opportunities in this tight little spot in this mixed-use, urban harbor development.

In 1986, H&S Properties Development Corp purchased the tract in 1986.  Assistant development manager Christopher H. Janian says that “First and foremost, Harbor East was intended to be a self-sufficient neighborhood for native Baltimoreans, a multiuse development modeled after New York City-style streetscapes.”

New York in Baltimore? You heard right. Harbor East is small: the limits are Fleet to Lancaster streets and the harbor to Caroline Street, 70 acres in total which extend the Inner Harbor Promenade. However, the size only serves to intensify the access to the urban park: commerce, shopping, dining, art, tourism, entertainment, and living. Developers are questing to recapture the time when all existed symbiotically in one setting. It’s an absolutely ideal spot for young professionals to blend home, work, and fun.

Harbor East is most well-known for its nightlife – head here to check out amazing stores like Kashmir Imports or Urban Chic, grab a bite to eat at the fantastic Pazo Cinco, and settle down for a drink at the James Joyce or Kosmos Lounge. Or, check out the 7-screen art house theatre at Landmark Theatres, which features gourmet food and bar. Sweet.

Harbor East also features several new  residences, located right in the heart of this pulsing urban hotspot – some of the neatest are the condominiums 850 Aliceanna (great view, big windows, on same street as everything else!) and The Vue (a gorgeous tower residence, also an Aliceanna), and apartments at Spinnaker Bay.
