Project DescriptionLocated on the waterfront of historic Fells Point, Union Wharf is a 281-unit, mixed-use development that embodies the character of its unique setting. The project features open, loft-like residences overlooking the harbor and multiple courtyards. A series of community amenity spaces wrap the main courtyard and a dramatic pool and water element stretches from the building lobby to the water’s edge. A combination of residential units and retail uses are designed below the podium level.
The building will be five stories and is designed as a podium and wrapper. The four upper levels will be constructed of wood frame over non-combustible construction at the first floor. In addition to residential units, the first floor level will contain a mix of uses including approximately 4,600 sf of retail and 14,000 sf of amenities and common areas. Parking will be provided in a 159,000 sf garage that will be “wrapped” on all four sides and provide 473 parking spaces.
“... Union Wharf will top anything we’ve ever done. It’s a beautiful building, we are working with an incredible group of consultants, and we’re hopeful we can really take this to another level in terms of resonating with renters.”
Union Wharf is currently completing its LEED NC v3 Design submission process and is pursuing a high Silver LEED Certification.
