Baltimore City, MD
The Harbor Point Development is located on a peninsula on the northeast shore of the Patapsco River of the Inner Harbor in the Fells Point section of Baltimore City, Maryland. Point Street Apartments is the third building to be constructed on Harbor Point, which is the former AlliedSignal (now Honeywell) Baltimore Works facility. A portion of this site has been capped and protected due to the presence of hexavalent chromium within the site. GTA provided subsurface exploration, geotechnical engineering, Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments, and Brownfield Remediation services. These services formed the basis for United States Environmental Protection Agency and Maryland Department of the Environment review and approval of a Conceptual Development Plan and a Detailed Development Plan. This multi-step agency review process is mandated for each phase of new development at Harbor Point, ensuring that the long-term environmental remedies remain intact, and that new uses are protective of human health and the environment.
GTA provided environmental, geotechnical, and construction-related observation and testing services for the 270,000-SF, 17-story apartment building with a one-level, 40,000-SF below grade parking garage, and 18,000 SF of retail space on the first floor. The foundations for the project include over 300 driven, environmental concentric closed-end steel pipe piles filled with concrete.
The project received a “WaveMaker Award” from the Urban Land Institute Baltimore District.
