Wheelhouse, New Co-living Development in Federal Hill Section, Provides Construction And Leasing Update


Residential leasing program to initiate in May with move-ins scheduled for July

Construction activities on Wheelhouse, a co-living development situated on 1110-1106 S. Charles Street in the Federal Hill section of Baltimore City, are approximately 50% completed with the residential pre-leasing program expected to initiate in May, in advance of the expected delivery of the five-story building this July. Developed by 28 Walker Development, the project will contain 29 apartment homes and approximately 5500 square feet of ground floor retail space. Resident amenities include full-service workspaces, a resident lounge, separate dining room and kitchen areas and an outdoor courtyard.

The residential component will be configured with small studios, along with two, three and four-bedroom designs ranging from 400 to 1200 square feet of space, with residents having the option to rent furnished or non-furnished apartments. Complimentary amenities include a Priority brand bicycle for each apartment, WiFi, cable television and housekeeping services,as well as regular special event programming. Wheelhouse will also provide a service to help connect residents with potential roommates.

Of the 5500 square feet of retail space available at Wheelhouse, approximately 4000 square feet has been taken off the market. BRD, a local restaurant that currently operates a food stall within R. House in Remington, will be opening a second location in Federal Hill. In addition, 28 Walker is actively engaged in negotiations with a national franchise concept, leaving 1400 square feet of space available for the lease.

The co-living concept is rapidly gaining popularity around the country with people interested in community living;combining thoughtfully designed living spaces with curated events that foster a community within the building. It is especially ideal for those that work remotely or from their homes, or for people that have recently relocated to the Baltimore and are not encumbered by a large amount of furniture. Having proximity to the urban core, including walkable restaurant and shopping amenities, are significant attractions to those interested in this new style of living.

“Our team has been carefully researching co-living developments and designs around the country and have taken the most successful concepts to integrate within Wheelhouse,” stated Alex Mandel of 28 Walker Development. “This project will resonate with people that crave a sense of community in their work and home spaces, given the various amenities that encourage socialization and sharing including the shared business center and eating areas. Wheelhouse is especially suited for individual entrepreneurs that seek creative energy, or singles looking to be part of a larger group. The two new restaurants will be a focal point of activity and a central gathering spot for the greater Federal Hill community.”
