This project converted a former 6-story furniture warehouse into a mid-rise, residential, mixed use building in the historic Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore. The conversion created 171 apartments with underground parking for 100 cars and retail and amenity space.

Each apartment includes an individual electric domestic water heater. The building is fully sprinklered, including a fire pump, and a dry pipe sprinkler system in the garage
