INSIDE THE  FOUR SEASONS
Friday we thought we'd grab lunch with H&S Properties development veeps Marco Greenberg and Mike Ricketts. We ended up getting way more than soup and salad—that is, an exclusive tour of the new Four Seasons Hotel.

We snapped Marco and Mike next to a model of Harbor East, H&S' mixed-use masterpiece and home to the hotel (you can see it behind the Legg Mason tower on the left). Marco tells us there's an expansion piece to the original 16-acre Harbor East site (where the hotel's located) once known as Harbor Point: it's 27 acres zoned for up to 1.8M SF of development. Thames St. Wharf, home to Morgan Stanley's Baltimore operations center, delivered there last year and US Lacrosse is looking to build a 42k SF HQ, museum, and hall of fame, although Marco says it's too early set a construction schedule. The 256-key Four Seasons delivers this November.

Here's what the 17-story hotel looks like from the street. You can't see the ground floor from this picture, but it'll have three Michael Mina-managed restaurants. When multifamily market conditions stabilize, an all-residential unit Phase 2 kicks off on top. When it's all said and done, Mike says the building will be 44 floors.

Work started on the hotel last February. Here's the 5,380 SF grand ballroom (they forgot to put up streamers for us) on the second floor. There's also a 3,900 SF junior ballroom down the hall that Mike says can be subdivided into three spaces. Beatty, Harvey, Coco is the project's architect, and BraytonHughes did interior design work.

Nothing like a picture of an outdoor pool (on the fourth floor) to get summer started. Mike tells us there'll be a hot tub and cooling pool on the fifth floor, as well as private cabanas.

And here's what a room looks like. Apparently, if you don't put a sign on door, they replace the sheets, mattress, nightstand, and all the appliances.
