Snow flurries fell from the dark starlit sky during the first ULI Content Before Cocktails event of 2019. A2 by Anthem House opened its doors to ULI Baltimore for a glimpse into the newest luxury apartment complex situated where Federal Hill and Locust Point meet.
Guests started the guided tour on the ground floor where the street-front retail space is making finishing touches. A2 stands five levels tall and is comprised of 52 total units, 32 of which are studios and the rest being two-bedroom & two-bath apartments. Currently occupied at 52%, A2 shares amenities with adjacent Anthem House. The lobby restaurant, pool and sundeck, work lounge, fitness center, pet areas, and outdoor green space are accessible for residents of both developments.
On the third floor, a sleek two-bedroom, two-bath unit was showcased. At 899 square feet, the monthly price point is $2,745. The full glass wall provided a view of the sparkling city skyline, making it easy to see why the first resident moved in on August 21, 2018. On the fifth floor, a studio apartment at 502 square feet was on display, costing $1,695 per month to occupy.
The tour ended with panoramic harbor views from the rooftop terrace. With wafts of neighboring RoFo fried chicken in the air, guests took their appetites to Amber at Anthem House for small plates and cocktails.
