On July 19, 2017, CREWBaltimore, the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC), and Professional Women in Building Council (PWB) of the Maryland Building Industry Association (MBIA) teamed up for a happy hour and construction tour of the Anthem House, a new apartment building located in the heart of Locust Point on the corner of East Fort Avenue and Lawrence Street.
Constructed by Bozzuto, the project is comprised of 292 apartments, 20,000 square feet of retail space and 9,000 square feet of office space. The project’s name was inspired by Baltimore’s history as the birthplace of the National Anthem and nearby Ft. McHenry and is intended to celebrate a spirit of energy and inspiration.
According to Tess Guinn with Bozzuto, the project was designed with fitness and creativity in mind and contains more than an acre of green space overlooking the harbor, a wellness-inspired fitness center, infinity pool, and more. Bernard Holnaider with RD Jones said that the development team really tried to create an energy that carries throughout the building.
The courtyards contain unparalleled views of the harbor and downtown Baltimore and numerous shared spaces were designed to inspire residents to come together. Local artists were even commissioned to create murals for display throughout the building. Inspired by community, wellness, and creative energy, Anthem House represents an innovative design unique to Baltimore and its history.
