Broadway is the predominant north-south artery in southeast Baltimore City. The Fells Point area features an eclectic array of architecture and historic character, with Broadway exemplifying much of that charm. The location is well known as an employment, shopping, dining and entertainment hub in Baltimore. Johns Hopkins Hospital is just a couple of blocks to the north. Other surrounding neighborhoods include Canton, Patterson Park and Butcher's Hill.

Situated at Broadway and Pratt Street, the property's orientation offers tremendous exposure for businesses of all kinds. The variety of shopping, dining, office and residential uses in close proximity exemplify the high demand for space in the area. The building is currently only 50% occupied, with the three apartments rented for a total of $2,700/month. The auction offers an opportunity for a user to have a visible location in an historic neighborhood while generating cash flow from the additional units, or for an investor to maximize cash flow once all units are occupied.
