Size & Type of Project - Traditional Design/Bid/Build
This project received prominent mention in Mayor O’Malley’s 2004 State of the City Address. When it broke ground, the Zenith was the first high-rise apartment building constructed in Baltimore’s inner harbor in more than a decade. Located directly north of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the 21 story tower with its glass curtain wall façade offers stunning panoramas of the Baltimore waterfront and skyline. One targeted tenant group was students from the University of Maryland’s Baltimore City Campus, which is just several blocks away from the site.
The housing complex has a 253 space parking garage and approximately 200 residential units. Ground level retail and restaurants complement the facility. Structural design began in summer 2004. Structural construction was topped out in fall 2006. Construction completion occurred in August 2007 at a cost of $46 Million. The project consists of approximately 318,000 gross framed square feet. Elevated decks utilize post-tension concrete framing.
