BALTIMORE | 300 E. Pratt St. | 164m | 525ft | 48 fl | Pro

Hotel, apartments planned for new East Pratt tower

December 6, 2014, 8:35 AM

Developers are scheduled to present designs to the city next week for a major mixed use development with a hotel and apartment on a prime Pratt Street parking lot across from Harborplace — one of the last undeveloped parcels close to the water..

The proposal from Comstock Partners, based in Reston, Va., and Chicago-based InterPark Holdings calls for a 200-room hotel, about 400 apartment units, retail space and about 500 parking spaces, said Kimberly A. Clark, executive vice president of the Baltimore Development Corp.

The 300 E. Pratt Street structure is expected to exceed 200 feet, she said, without specifying because the plans were not in front of her.

The developer will release the plans Thursday at a meeting of the city's Urban Design & Architecture Review Panel.

It will be the second major new project for an Inner Harbor parcel to be announced this year. Plans for a skyscraper of luxury apartments at 414 Light Street were announced this spring.

Early designs presented for 300 East Pratt tower

"The final piece of the Pratt Street puzzle began to fall into place Thursday when developers presented initial plans for a hotel and apartment tower on what is now a parking lot.

The developers of the high-profile Inner Harbor parcel said they hope to break ground in early 2016, but members of the city's design panel raised many questions about the project on one of downtown's most visible sites.

The proposal for 300 East Pratt Street from InterPark LLC and Comstock Partners calls for a building that would rise at least 38 stories, or about 425 feet, making it among the tallest in the city. It would include a hotel with 200 rooms, about 400 apartments, at least 500 parking spaces and up to 20,000 square feet of retail.

"Future postcards of the city of Baltimore will feature this site."
- Gregory Luongo, a Washington-based vice president at HKS, the architecture firm working on the plans

"We want to try to make this building distinctly Baltimorean… but at the same time we want this building to be of the 21st century," said Gregory Luongo, a Washington-based vice president at HKS, the architecture firm working on the plans. "Future postcards of the city of Baltimore will feature this site."

The property, a narrow rectangle between Commerce and South streets used as a parking lot, has lain dormant since the News-American building was razed in 1990. Under two previous owners, plans were floated for offices, hotels, and condominiums but never realized.

InterPark, a Chicago-based developer and parking garage operator, bought the site last year for $16.4 million and requested bids from developers. Comstock, located in Reston, Va., started working with the firm last spring.

"It's been one of those missing teeth in the Inner Harbor for a long time" said panel member Richard Burns. "I'm glad someone's actually going to develop this site."

Preliminary designs showed a tower sitting on a stacked base, with retail on the first floor on Pratt Street, followed by another layer of parking and hotel rooms fronting the water.

But much of the plans remain undecided. Comstock said it has not yet settled on a look for the building, let alone materials for the structure. The ground floor will change since it is constrained by flood regulations enacted this year that mean the the developers must locate occupied space more than six feet above Pratt Street.


[...]

The 300 East Pratt Street proposal is the second downtown skyscraper to come before the city this year. Questar Properties received design approval earlier for a luxury apartment tower at 414 Light Street. The Baltimore-area developer expects to begin construction by early next year.

Downtown Partnership President Kirby Fowler said he is encouraged by the Pratt Street project's progress so far, saying the team seems "a lot more energetic" than previous efforts.

"We've been waiting decades for this site to be developed. It's one of the last missing pieces of the Pratt Street experience," said Fowler, adding that he wants to see more developed plans. "Every photographer seems to take a shot of downtown looking towards this skyline so there's a great opportunity for some special architecture."

Comstock spokeswoman Maggie Parker declined to provide an estimated cost for the project, saying it was too early in the process. The Pratt Street tower would be the firm's first development in Baltimore. Its previous projects include mixed-use developments close to stations on the Washington region's Silver Line.

3/20: A significant bump in height appears imminent:

A 48-floor building is likely to top 500 feet, putting the proposed building in the ranks of city skyline mainstays like the 529-foot Transamerica Tower.

For Baltimore this is great. The city could use some more skyscrapers since it's practically the only area in the 10 million CSA willing and able to construct them over 500'
