Anthem House

Anthem House, a $100 million luxury apartment complex in South Baltimore, will open its doors to residents in June.

The leasing office at the 292-unit building, located at 900 E. Fort Ave in Locust Point, opens Saturday.

The modern-design project, by the Bozzuto Group, Scott Plank‘s War Horse Cities, and Solstice Partners, is intended to serve a range of potential tenants — from young Under Armour executives and renters priced out of Washington, D.C., to retired couples looking to downsize somewhere fun.

“There’s no providence on feeling good,” said Toby Bozzuto, president and CEO of Bozzuto. “Young people want to feel older and sophisticated, and older people want to feel younger.

“There’s an aspirational quality of living, and I think this will help to make them feel very special.”

Rents start at $1,850 for a 540-square-foot studio, according to the property’s website. One- and two-bedroom apartments range from about $2,100 to more than $4,000 a month.

The prices reflect a space brimming with amenities, such as a billiard lounge and media room, pool, sundeck and dog-washing station. A 3,800-square-foot fitness center, open around the clock, has state-of-the-art equipment, personal trainers and nutritionists.

All the apartments have 9-foot ceilings, kitchens with quartz countertops and energy-efficient appliances, porcelain-tiled bathrooms, and full-sized washers and dryers.

Some units have balconies or patios, wine fridges, wall ovens and waterfall countertops.

The ground floor features 20,000-square-feet of first-floor retail, including a to-be-named restaurant that will open into the apartment complex’s lobby. The property also has 400 parking spaces.

Anthem House was built in an “S” shape to maximize the city and harbor views granted by its elevation in Locust Point. The building’s curves give way to two elevated courtyards with an outdoor kitchen and grill station. Combined, the building has a total of about an acre of green space.

“We want to create these built environments that are inspiring,” said Plank, the brother of Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank.

The name “Anthem House” plays a dual role of honoring Baltimore as the birthplace of the Star Spangled Banner, and playing into the lifestyle the developers sought to create with the building’s community features.

“Each person has to have their own set of values and those values can become a rallying cry for your lifestyle,” Plank said. “I think of that as your own personal anthem.”

The project’s design team included KTGY Architecture + Planning; Whitman, Requardt & Associates; RD Jones & Associates; and Mahan Rykiel Associates Inc.

The property is the first of three residential projects in Locust Point by War Horse and Bozzuto to be completed.

Anthem House II, a smaller apartment building with less expensive units being developed with Solstice at 1430 Lawrence Street, is expected to open in about a year.

Bozzuto and War Horse are also working Alta 47, on a 47-townhome development at 1520 Beason Street. The first homes will be completed this summer.
