Baltimore’s Inner Harbor will soon be home to the landmark Four Seasons Hotel and Residences at Harbor East.
The hotel is the focal point of the redevelopment of a 6-block area that connects the Inner Harbor with the surrounding residential neighborhoods. HKS Hill Glazier Studio is the design architect, with Beatty Harvey & Associates providing architect-of-record services.
The mixed-use facility contains residential, hotel, commercial, entertainment, and retail spaces. The facility includes a 256-key hotel, upscale condominiums, pool, world-class spa, fitness facilities, meeting and banquet spaces, chic retail, and a signature restaurant as well as a bar and lounge.
Distinctive building massing will clearly reflect The Four Seasons Hotel’s superb waterside location. The pool and meeting areas will showcase these waterfront views. Many hotel rooms and suites will also feature balconies with direct views of the Inner Harbor.
While drawing upon nearby buildings, the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore lends a contemporary feel to the neighborhood. “Sleek glass towers will be the focal point of the development complex which includes high-end retail, a five-star hotel, Four Seasons-branded condominiums, and the most desirable office space in Baltimore and possibly the entire east coast,” states Christopher Janian, Assistant Development Manager, H&S Properties Development Corporation.
“Designed to be a self-sufficient neighborhood, Harbor East includes amenities catering to a diverse mix of people,” he continued. “The Four Seasons Baltimore at Harbor East will be the area’s crown jewel, adding to the 24-hour environment where people can truly live, work, and play.”
The floor-to-ceiling glass curtain wall will allow natural light to permeate throughout the hotel, creating an inviting and unparalleled ambience. The Four Seasons Hotel and Residences at Harbor East is scheduled to open first quarter 2010.
