Anthem House

Baltimore, Maryland

Anthem House is a mixed-use community that brings 287 upscale apartment homes, with retail and structured parking, to Baltimore’s Locust Point neighborhood. The landscape design for the development incorporates reclaimed materials and a native plant palette to reflect the site’s ecological and industrial heritage.

Mahan Rykiel provided landscape architectural services for the three-acre site. The scope consists of two amenity rooftop courtyard spaces and streetscape design. The third-story infinity pool courtyard employs a strong, industrial yet- contemporary design aesthetic. The space incorporates spill-out space from the building’s fitness center and is positioned to showcase excellent views of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. The fourth-story courtyard creates a park-like space for residents overlooking Locust Point. It features a rock outcropping promontory, outdoor dining space and a spacious lawn. Both courtyards are arranged above the building’s structured parking.

Ecologically-sensitive streetscaping along Fort Avenue and Lawrence Street reflect the forward thinking nature of the project by utilizing micro-bioretention tree pits to treat the site’s storm water. The project was completed in late 2016 and is LEED Silver Certification.
