Chesapeake Realty Partners’ ‘Industrial Chic’ Apartments Coming to South Baltimore

The south end of Charles Street, in Baltimore, was once an unattractive industrial area. But that all changed in the last few years. It all started in 2012, with the opening of 1901 South Charles and its 193 luxury apartments, and more apartments are on their way.

The south end of Charles Street, in Baltimore, was once an unattractive industrial area. But that has changed in the last few years. It all started in 2012, with the opening of 1901 South Charles and its 193 luxury apartments, and more apartments are on their way.

Chesapeake Realty Partners is developing the project, called 2 East Wells, on the site of a large warehouse and office building. Those buildings were razed to make way for the new property. Chesapeake started work in late 2013 and is now nearing completion. The company did not reveal the cost of the project.

When it opens in early 2015, 2 East Wells will be South Charles Street’s newest apartment community. It will include 153 industrial-chic apartments and 6,000 square feet of retail space along Wells Street.

According to Josh E. Fidler, co-chairman of Chesapeake Realty Partners, in a press statement, “Two East Wells is classic Baltimore, with its warm brick façade, industrial-style, floor-to-ceiling multi-pane windows and, of course, roof decks with endless city views.”

The community will offer a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom luxury apartments, with 9 foot ceilings and numerous other features. Amenities include garage parking, a state-of-the-art fitness center, interior courtyard and more. According to 2 East Wells’ website, rents start from $1,508 per month for a studio, and from $2,310 per month for a two-bedroom unit.

In a news release, Chesapeake Realty Partners said the new community will be LEED Silver certified. The company also announced that pre-leasing has already started, adding that ”interest in the community has been extremely high.”
