BALTIMORE | Four Seasons | 107m | 350ft | 33 fl | U/C

Note: The Legg Mason Tower was completed in 2009 however the neighboring Four Season Hotel was halted at around 25 floors due to the 2008 economic crisis. Construction on 7 additional floors resumed earlier in 2015.

Legg Mason leaving downtown home

(Chris Ammann/Baltimore Examiner)
Financial giant Legg Mason announced today it is leaving its downtown tower for new digs in Harbor East.
BALTIMORE - Legg Mason is getting a new address. The asset management firm announced Tuesday that it signed a 15-year agreement with H&S Development Corp. to lease up to 400,000 square feet in a proposed complex in Baltimore's Inner Harbor East.


The new Legg Mason tower in Harbor East will be home to the majority of the firm’s Baltimore-area employees, beginning in the summer of 2009, when the company plans to move.

“It's going to be brand new, state-of-the-art space that we can customize,” said Mary Athridge, spokeswoman for Legg Mason.

When Legg moves, it will leave behind its iconic home at the corner of Pratt and Light streets that bears its name. A standout along the Baltimore skyline, the building was constructed in 1973 and is the tallest in Maryland, according to Emporis, an international building and real estate data base.

The current Harbor East development covers eight square blocks — more than 500,000 square feet of retail and entertainment space and 1 million square feet of new Class-A office space.
The developer estimates the entire space will create more than 4,000 new jobs for Baltimore City, H&S said in a news release.

Legg Mason employees are looking forward to the new complex.

“There are pictures posted around of the new building, and people are saying, ‘this looks really nice,’” Athridge said.

As for Baltimore, the city is glad that Legg Mason is staying in Charm City.

“I think it’s great news,” said Kirby Fowler, president of The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore Inc. “We are glad to see that they are staying in Baltimore City and expanding.”

Athridge said the move isn’t that big of a deal, but the company is excited.

‘It's not that we're leaving,” she said, “but that we're taking advantage of the new space.”





This is HUGE!!!
The Four Seasons tower is over 36 floors high. Clearly a new tallest for the Harbor East skyline. Leg Mason's new building looks good, too.
I can't wait till ground-breaking.
:tup:
Come on, 2009!

Inner Harbor East

They wil have to break ground almost immediately since it has to be finished by 2009. The 36 story tower will probably be about 425 feet tall and the Legg Mason Tower about 325 feet tall. WOW what a development of Inner Harbor Easy and Acoompanying Harbor Point. 7 or 8 hotels, the Corporate Headquaters for Sylvan, Legg Mason, and a huge office for Morgan Stanley.
Over 2,000 housing units and tons of retail space. I think the whole development is over 8,000,000 square feet. This unit delvelopment covering about 45 acres is probably one of the largest single developement projects in the country. it is sad now that H&S was not allowed to build the original 51 story hotel where the 32 story hotel is now. That would have really made a difference. I'll take 36 stories anyday over the original 24 stories. I think both towers will sart at the same time for one reason. The two towers will sit on a base with a 1,200 car garage. it just does not make sense to build in stages when you have to build the base anyway. I'm glad to see Legg Mason actually bringing in employees from the County.

The new design for the Four Seasons Hotel looks MUCH better than the initial proposal. Less brick, more height..an office component.

I wouldve liked to see Legg become the primary tenet at 1 Light Street, but whatever. I cant complain too much. Its not my $550 million being spent.

Sweet. I agree, the new design is far better than the earlier, more glass and steel. There should be no trouble in leasing the old legg tower, might be many different companies though. Downton is really going to look different with this project, 10 Inner Harbor, 300 East Pratt, Westport Tower and the likely 2 60 story towers on guilford near Hammer Jacks.

Wow, this render (with the stepped building to the left) really gives me a feel for how big these are going to be.

I so *heart* Harbor East. I need to get back to Pazo for their malloredus.

wow. way to put a downer on things...
no one ever said that using feet means that we are trying to make the world adapt to our system and if you really wanted to know what it is in meters, you can go to a place that converts ft to meters. but ill do that 494 ft = 150.571 2 meters. 350 = 106.68 meters
seriously, it IS a US project and here in the US we dont usually give out meters to the public, but ft and they gave us 494 ft and 350 ft. Im Sorry if we have a different system than you and you get mad at us for it

-------------------------------

on a better note, here are some new renderings





im so happy for baltimore! (even if some people cant be and complain about our system of mesurment )
