Bainbridge To Host Groundbreaking on Bainbridge Federal Hill Near Baltimore’s CBD

The developer to celebrate its first community in the city on Wednesday, Jan. 31, at 10:30 a.m.

BALTIMORE – Jan. 30, 2018 – The Bainbridge Companies, a leading owner, developer and manager of luxury multifamily communities in the eastern U.S., and its partner Willton Investment Group, will celebrate the groundbreaking tomorrow on Bainbridge Federal Hill, a 224-apartment community at 1100 Key Highway. The groundbreaking ceremony will kick-off at 10:30 a.m. EST.

Construction is slated for completion by mid-2019. The community, which is designed to achieve a LEED Silver Certification from the United States Green Building Council, will be Bainbridge’s first in Baltimore.

Downtown Baltimore has experienced healthy job growth in recent years and a resurgence in downtown living – leaving residents hungry for a best-in-class, highly amenitized, live-work-play apartment community in the area. With in-demand amenities and high-end finishes with its location in a charming historical area, Bainbridge Federal Hill will answer that call and then some. In fact, it will truly represent a revolution in city living.

“It’s an exciting time for the Bainbridge team. We have been considering the Baltimore market for quite some time, understanding the City is very diligent about agreeing to the right multifamily projects. We worked closely and carefully with the city and surrounding neighborhood to design a community we all are excited about,” said Tom Keady, president of The Bainbridge Companies. “A triumph of luxury and architecture, Bainbridge Federal Hill will offer discerning residents a stunning choice in one of Charm City’s most sought-after neighborhoods.”

Located just south of Baltimore’s thriving central business district and the Inner Harbor, the 247,500-square-foot, eight-story community will feature contemporary industrial design and make abundant use of beautiful natural light. The community will be a short walk from the Federal Hill Historic District, which features a wide array of restaurants, museums and nightlife. Other nearby attractions include Camden Yards, home of the Baltimore Orioles baseball team; the National Aquarium; the Maryland Science Center; Federal Hill Park; Riverside Park; the American Visionary Art Museum; and the Cross Street Market. Bainbridge Federal Hill will also offer convenient access to Interstates 95 and 395.

Bainbridge Federal Hill will also feature more than 12,000 square feet of common-area amenity space spread out over three floors. At the heart of the amenities is a stunning two-story, glass-surround, 24-hour fitness center with a cardio mezzanine level, weight room and Fitness On Demand classes. The fitness center further includes outdoor fitness areas, locker rooms and a mixed-use fitness room. The property also will include a pool and elevated pool deck overlooking the Inner Harbor; a designated Uber/Lyft entrance; a cyber café; a rooftop outdoor lounge with gorgeous views of the Inner Harbor; storage for more than 50 bikes and a bicycle repair station; a pet spa with pet washing stations; and a package locker system with 24-hour access.

A game room; a double-sided, indoor-outdoor fireplace on the eighth floor; and a conference room with a catering kitchen are among the community’s other amenities. The property also will feature a secure 228-vehicle parking garage with electric car charging stations. Hord Coplan Macht is the architect of the community.

“This community is designed to meet all the needs of the modern renter,” Keady said. “It provides many areas to gather with friends, to enjoy solitude or to work from home. It all adds up to an outstanding resident experience that other downtown Baltimore communities simply cannot match.”

To ensure an unmatched resident living experience, Bainbridge Federal Hill will offer studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans. Some of the apartments will feature loft spaces, ideal for home offices. The apartment homes will feature quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, 42-inch cabinets and balconies with harbor views.
