2113 N. Charles Street is located in central Baltimore City, just south of Johns Hopkins University.  The building is easily accessible to the Jones Falls Expressway (I-83) and public transportation.  The surrounding “Charles North” neighborhood is home to many non-profit organizations, professional offices, small boutiques and has a varied residential component.  As described by LiveBaltimore.com:

"The Charles North neighborhood offers an eclectic mix of arts and entertainment venues as well as historic buildings and architecturally impressive houses. Located directly north of Penn Station, the area has been transformed into one of the most hip locations in the city with the Station North Arts and Entertainment District drawing artists, music lovers and young professionals into the heart of Baltimore. Adding to Charles North's central location is the scenic Jones Falls River corridor just to the south as well as the Maryland Institute College of Art and the University of Baltimore. Coupled with the neighborhood's present success, Charles North continues to experience rapid growth and expansion with an exciting array of residential and commercial development planned in the next 10 to 20 years.

Charles North was originally a community that grew in the 1880's - 1890's as a suburb to downtown Baltimore (North Avenue served as the northern boundary Baltimore City). The area was home to a growing middle to upper class where North Avenue in its heyday served the area with fine shopping, restaurants and movie theaters. The area changed greatly during World War II, but still offers a distinctive collection of Victorian houses with splendid details conveniently located by Penn Station."
