ARC Wheeler Buys Inner Harbor Site, Plans $400M Skyscraper
September 20, 2006
By Michael Fickes, Mid-Atlantic Correspondent

"With the acquisition of a two-acre Inner Harbor parking lot that once housed a McCormick & Co. spice plant, Philadelphia-based developer ARC Wheeler is set to bring its idea for branded mixed-use urban skyscrapers to Baltimore. The company plans to begin construction of a $400-million, 59-story, 1.3 million-square-foot tower next summer.

To be called 10 Inner Harbor (pictured), it will be the second in a planned series. "The first--10 Rittenhouse Square--is under construction in Philadelphia right now," Harold B. Wheeler, a principal with ARC Wheeler, told CPN. "The idea is that on a scale of one to ten, ten is always the best. Our 10s are mixed use, with retail and parking on the lower levels, a little bit of office space, and mostly exclusive residential condominiums."

The Rittenhouse Square design calls for a 500,000 square foot, $200 million tower. ARC Wheeler is evaluating locations in a number of cities similar in size to Baltimore and Philadelphia as potential branded-10 sites, which will cater to empty nest baby-boomers that want smaller residences and city lifestyles.

ARC Wheeler purchased the property from the Central Parking Corp. While the purchase price was not disclosed, Scott Manhoff, senior vice president with the Baltimore office of Grubb & Ellis Co. estimated that a developer might pay between $20 and $30 per built square foot for an urban parking lot. "If the buildout is 1.3 million square feet, the purchase price might be between $20 and $30 million."

Just want to take the time to say that the official height has always been 715' feet, this is according to the developers website and even the architects. 650'feet is unconfirmed rumored, hearsay.

^ at 715 feet, 218 meters (I got the title wrong - ive asked a moderator to fix it don't worry!) it will beat the Legg Mason building by 57 meters, so yes, it will be the tallest!
