Baltimore: Inner Harbor

3 posts in this topic

Here's Part 2 of the 4 part series of three Baltimore neighborhoods I recently visited. The Inner Harbor is nationally known for it's revitalization of downtown Baltimore. The most recent redevelopment is is the Harbor East area, a few blocks east of the main Inner harbor area. What was once parking lots just a couple years ago is now becoming a neighborhood full of highrises which will function as condos, hotels, retail space, and entertainment complexes.

Looking across a channel from Caroline Street at Lancaster Street and the developments along it in the Harbor East area. The building in the foreground is 701 South Eden Street, which will be a condo building.
