Seawall Pitches 200 Units, 125K SF Of Office In Early Sisson Street East Design
Seawall Development presented early renderings depicting the potential massing of buildings on 3.3 acres between Sisson, West 28th and East 29th streets, said Katie Marshall, a spokesperson for the developer.
"It's still in the very early stages of the project," Marshall said.
Seawall Development intends to build approximately 200 apartments, 125K SF of office space, and 50K SF of entertainment, retail, and food and beverage space. The developer also proposes building a parking garage on-site, wrapped by residential and office buildings.
The site, adjacent to Interstate 83, today holds a roughly 17K SF industrial building delivered in 1920 valued at less than $700K, according to Maryland property records.
Panelists provided generally positive feedback on the bare-bones renderings, the Baltimore Business Journal reports. However, Urban Design and Architecture Advisory Panel members suggested the development team reconsider the massing of the buildings given their size compared to the surrounding residential neighborhood.
Marshall said Seawall expects to be "back in front of UDAAP this year" to present revised designs. She added the developer intends to release more details about the project, such as a development timeline and a price tag, early next year.
The East Sisson Street project is the latest investment by Seawall Development in Remington following projects like Miller's Court, food hall R. House and the mixed-use Remington Row. Seawall is also in the process of developing The Service Center at 2507 North Howard St.
"We call it The Service Center for a couple of reasons," Seawall Development co-founder Thibault Manekin recently told Bisnow. "One is that it was an old Honda Service Center where you'd bring your car to get serviced. The second piece is that the idea for The Service Center is that it will be one of the most civically engaged buildings in Baltimore, from the companies and organizations that work inside of it to the individuals that live in it."
