Locust Point, Baltimore


Locust Point, Baltimore

Locust Point is a peninsular neighborhood located in Baltimore, Maryland. Bounded by Lawrence street to the west and the Patapsco River to the north, south, and east; Locust Point is noted as being the home to Fort McHenry. It has also served as one of the centers of Baltimore's Polish-American, Irish-American and Italian-American communities.

Sporting wear firm Under Armour makes its home in Tide Point, a historic waterfront rehab by Struever Brothers Eccles & Rouse located at the end of Hull Street. When it was completed in 2002, this former soap factory turned Class A office space was the first major redevelopment in the neighborhood in decades. Today investors and developers have shown strong interest in the continued revitilization of one of Baltimore's most charming neighborhoods.

There are two Maryland Port Authority marine terminals located within the neighborhood, as well as the massive Domino sugar factory, a reminder that the industrial use of the Baltimore Harbor is still a very important component of the local economy.
