NAI KLNB and Cushman & Wakefield are handling the officeleasing for the mixed-use project for developer Mark Sapperstein.Tenants that have inked deals recently include Gkv, which announcedit would relocate its corporate headquarters to McHenry Row, aswell as the Baltimore Metropolitan Council and KCITechnologies.

Asking rates for the office portion are $25.75 per square foot,plus utilities. There are few to no office buildings underdevelopment in Baltimore now, Nolan says--but the city has yet toenter supply-constrained territory. He attributes the high level ofpreleasing to the building’s location across from the waterfront,making it very easy to get in and out of Baltimore. Also, eventhough the building is located in the Downtown market, it offerssuburban amenities, he says--namely free indoor parking.

McHenry Row is located near the intersection of Key Highway andEast Fort Street, offering direct access to Interstate 95. Alltogether the project offers 110,000 square feet of retail spacewith 64,000 square feet of office space and 250 residentialapartments. The office building will be delivered this fall; onlythe top floor is still available. Retail tenants include HarrisTeeter, the Greene Turtle restaurant, Dunkin's Donuts, M&T Bankand PNC Bank.
