Chapter 4: The Socialite

 

The posh side of the waterfront lives in Harbor East. This neighborhood is a destination by day as Baltimore’s financial center and is a beacon for its glossy nightlife. The architecture is mostly new construction; think gleaming high-rise condos with street level boutiques. The waterside promenade is filled with people jogging, walking dogs, or just relaxing on one of the many benches lining the marina.

 

Boutique shopping is a must in Harbor East. From home furnishings to designer handbags to the latest fashions, you can find it all. Browse shops including Arhaus FurnitureLululemonHandbags in the City, and Amaryllis. The Under Armour Brand House is centrally located, and features special events and their very best gear. Be sure to visit Sassanova, an award-winning boutique specializing in feminine footwear, accessories, and clothing. There is also a Warby Parker shop, which is here to keep your eyewear of the minute, and also a favorite way to pass an hour trying on all of the frames.

 

Harbor East is the Financial Center of the city, home to the Carey Business School of Johns HopkinsLegg MasonOne Main FinancialMorgan Stanley, and Exelon, just to name a few. Naturally, this means the neighborhood hosts luxury hotels and some of the city’s best dining.

 

 

 

 

Sagamore Pendry is a brand new boutique hotel located few blocks down waterfront. The hotel was developed on the historic Recreation Pier. The construction marries rich materials with contemporary design. It’s a stylish option for an evening drink at their American whiskey bar, The Cannon Room.

 

If you’re looking for an outstanding dinner and excitement, the Foreman Wolf Restaurant Group has you covered. Transport yourself to Buenos Aires and head to Bar Vasquez for New World Argentinian cuisine and live Latin music. You can sit upstairs for a fine dining experience, or spend the night on the main level that’s designed with a discerning eye, balancing glamour with a rustic sensibility. That includes elements such as Brazilian Tiger wood, cowhide, intricate stenciling, and 15-foot palm trees. Special ingredients are flown in from various South American regions.

 

Another notable restaurant from Foreman Wolf is Cinghiale, an Italian fine dining dream. The chefs are artists; the food is exquisite; the dining room is airy, yet warm. However, one of the best things about Cinghiale, is the wine. An entire section of the restaurant is dedicated to their Enoteca, a lovely setting to enjoy wine flights and charcuterie. Be sure to engage the sommelier on their haute wine selection, which includes a mature cellar stocked with wines from all over Italy. Just a block away is Foreman Wolf’s third Harbor East restaurant, The Charleston, which is “rooted in French fundamentals and the Low Country cooking of South Carolina.”

 

 

 

 

For a hip evening with a cascading view of the water, dine at the Atlas Group’s Azumi, a Japanese restaurant that highlights elegant sushi, a refined sake selection, and attentive service. The interior fuses elements of traditional Japanese design with a posh nightclub vibe. The Atlas also produced Ouzo Bay, a Greek seafood kouzina.

 

The most refined retreat in the city is on the same block, where five star service is the norm. The Spa at the Four Seasons feels other worldly, hovering high in the sky. The atmosphere is serene and private. Massages, body treatments, saunas and steam rooms are luxurious.

 

Harbor East is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in Baltimore, with direct access to Little Italy, Fells Point, Canton, and the Inner Harbor. It’s a simple walk along the waterfront promenade or through the winding, lively streets.

 

 

 

guerilla’s real estate pick:

1400 Lancaster, Baltimore, MD 21231

 

 

 

Located on a prime corner of Harbor East with close proximity to both the financial offices and nightlife, 1400 Lancaster is a nearly perfect condominium. It was one of the earlier buildings in Harbor East constructed in 2005 and sales have fluctuated from the mid $300s to $700+. This condo stands out for its pet friendly policy, low monthly condo fees, and has great disability access including a lift for wheel chairs. The lobby is sleek with Bisazza glass tile and Mies Van Der Rohe couches.

 

 

Floor to ceiling windows give way to sundrenched, spacious rooms. Multiple bedrooms and bathrooms are perfect for families or visiting guests. Condos vary from one to two stories. While each unit is unique, they all have some features in common, including contemporary kitchen appliances, fireplace, balcony, walk in closets, and large bathrooms with Jacuzzi spa. Some units have large private patios with a guesthouse, perfect for large gardens and outdoor social space. Residents enjoy private garage parking and 24 hour security.

 

 

 

1400 Lancaster’s population is both newly minted Baltimoreans and folks who are excited about moving the waterfront. Enjoy Baltimore’s new financial district on a power lunch as well as some of the best restaurants and shopping in the city. When a unit becomes available, it’s smart to move fast, as these don’t stay on the market long.
