The new luxury residential tower lies at the water’s edge in the Inner Harbor and redefines its storied address on the corner of Light and Conway Streets as the most desirable residential experience in the Mid-Atlantic region. The tower’s interiors designed by celebrated residential designer Kari Whitman complement the building’s exterior with elegant and timeless detailing throughout the building’s community spaces and model units.
The residences were imagined with the sensibility of a custom-designed home, offering a level of quality and care yet to be seen in the residential landscape of Baltimore. Each space has been thoughtfully curatedwith features including leading-edge smart home customization, walk-in closets with custom organization, Poggenpohl kitchen cabinetry, Caesarstone Quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances including Bosch gas ovens and cooktops, and more. Offering studio, one- and two-bedroom residences, more than half of the 394 residences include private balconies.

Rental prices range from approximately $1,890 to $8,000 per month.
The highly amenitized building offers a full suite of bespoke services for residents with a 24-hour concierge, a robust wellness program providing everything from personal fitness training to reiki healing and onsite massages, access to a host of services, from a personal shopper to a cadre of dog walkers. Among the tower’s 40,000 square-feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space lies an expansive 7thfloor Skyline Terrace, where residents may sunbathe at the rooftop pool, relish a starlit dinner at the al fresco kitchen, or host an outdoor movie night on the 16-foot dual-sided movie screen on the green. For outdoor exercise and indoor pampering, residents with pets can visit the pet park and pet spa, complete with a treat-filled vending machine to reward each four-legged friend. Indoors, residents can stroll past the art-filled lobby and gracious reception area to dine on canape and crudite at the spacious entertainment kitchen and dining bar, relax with a good book within the fireside retreat room, or host an evening soiree in the resident salon and theater. Fitness-minded residents may build their strength at the club-caliber 4,000 square-foot fitness center or find their balance at the yoga and meditation room.
Situated on the waterfront of Baltimore’s attractive Inner Harbor neighborhood, 414 Light Street is ideally positioned at the convergence of the best of Baltimore’s business, fine dining and entertainment centers. Endless opportunities for outdoor activities lie right outside the tower’s doors, with the rest of the harbor footsteps away. An amenity in itself, 414 Light Street is near the National Aquarium and Maryland Science Center and a few blocks from the excitement of Oriole Park at Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium. With 12,300 square-feet of ground floor retail space, residents will enjoy the convenience of dining and retail shopping just steps from their new home.
Among its retail tenants, the tower will include Ramen Utsuke, an authentic Japanese noodle dining destination with table service and carry out, which is slated to open in early 2019. An internationally renowned plant-food based restaurant is also expected to be among two additional future retail tenants.
