Hord Coplan Macht was chosen to design two of the first three mixed-use buildings for the new Baltimore Peninsula neighborhood in South Baltimore. Including the future corporate campus of Under Armour, this exciting new district will leverage the creation of a world class, connective waterfront through parks and green space. Our design promotes a walkable, urban environment with a vibrant mix of uses.
Positioned on 1.5 acres, Rye House is expressed as two eight story masonry volumes connected by a glass and steel bridge. The steel detailing, a reference to the site’s industrial past, reappears throughout the building in the form of canopies, balconies, bays and trellis. The building consists of 200 market rate units, 54 affordable units and will include 16,000 SF of ground level retail. Approximately 12,000 SF of resident amenity is spread across multiple levels, including a rooftop terrace, fitness center, lounge, leasing center, bicycle storage, mail room and package storage.
The building form and massing contribute to the urban design goals of the Baltimore Peninsula Master Plan. Inspired by the site’s history as a rail yard and industrial hub, Hord Coplan Macht reinterpreted Rye House into a modern expression, honoring the past while welcoming this neighborhood’s exciting future.
