The high-design, extended-stay hotel brand will introduce an 81-room apartment hotel to the waterfront neighborhood.
Today, the Baltimore Peninsula development team, led by MAG Partners and MacFarlane Partners, and Method Co., the nationally-acclaimed development and design company rooted in hospitality, announced plans for a new design-centric, 81-room ROOST Apartment Hotel, the concept known for bridging the boutique hotel experience with apartment-style living. The new ROOST Apartment Hotel in Baltimore will be located within Baltimore Peninsula at 2400 Terrapin Way, a 235-acre mixed-use waterfront neighborhood. The team, together with its joint venture partners Sagamore Ventures and the Urban Investment Group within Goldman Sachs Asset Management (Goldman Sachs), is scheduled to open ROOST Baltimore Peninsula in Summer 2023.
The multi-million-dollar project, designed by architecture firm Hord Coplan Macht, will feature a mix of furnished studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment hotel units with interiors designed in collaboration between interior design firm Aumen Asner Inc. and Method Studios, Method Co.’s in-house design firm.
Each apartment hotel unit will feature full-size kitchens with modern-day appliances and full-wall windows and balconies to take advantage of the stunning waterfront views. The apartment hotel units, amenity space and lobby feature custom and curated furnishings from designers such as Lawson-Fenning, Gubi, TON, Pedrali, &Tradition, Interior Define, Noguchi, Santa and Cole, Dumais Made, O & G, and Lumas. The furniture curation throughout the space, also designed by Method Studios, draws inspiration from the industrial and maritime heritage of Baltimore as a premier port city. The space is populated with vintage designer pieces, with a color palette of blues and greens accented by blackened steel and rich walnut wood. The property includes a 24-7 concierge, an on-site fitness center with Peloton bikes, and 20,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor resort-like amenity space including an open-air pool lined with cabanas and an outdoor fireplace centered around a full-service hybrid bar and lounge. Additionally, Method Co. will be leasing out 40 apartment units for long-term residents who will also have access to all of the building’s amenities.
The ROOST Apartment Hotel will be Baltimore’s first high-design, extended-stay hotel concept, blending the comfort and space of an apartment with the amenities and design of a boutique hotel, creating a temporary living environment ideally suited for today’s travelers away for a few days and long-term guests alike. Considered a pioneer in the high-design apartment hotel movement, Method Co.’s ROOST Apartment Hotel brand is significantly expanding its portfolio with recent openings outside of its home base of Philadelphia, including Cleveland and Tampa with plans to open additional locations in Detroit this Spring and Charleston in 2024.
Method Co. has combined its expertise in design, placemaking and operations to lead the development of the new property, building upon its robust portfolio of successful brands and hotel property launches, including five open locations of the ROOST Apartment Hotel brand, Whyle, Wm. Mulherin’s Sons Restaurant & Hotel, HIROKI, Charleston’s newest luxury boutique hotel, The Pinch, along with its adjacent oyster bar and cocktail lounge, The Quinte, and the recent opening of Wilmington, Delaware’s first, luxury boutique hotel, The Quoin along with its craft cocktail lounge, Simmer Down.
The Baltimore Region is the 20th largest metropolitan population in the United States with more than 2.8 million residents and encompasses more than 2,500 square miles of diverse land. With its premier geographic location, the region provides overnight access to one-third of the U.S. consumer market. For residents, business, or leisure travelers, it’s a short trip from Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston. The new ROOST Apartment Hotel will further support Baltimore Peninsula’s ability to accommodate the high volume of travelers, as well as residents moving to the area.
This addition of the ROOST Apartment Hotel follows a string of announcements the development team has recently made, including the start of residential leasing; welcoming CFG Bank as the area’s largest office tenant; renaming of the neighborhood to Baltimore Peninsula; and the launch of a new strategic partnership with Sweeten to bring transparent, data-driven decision making to the construction industry, resulting in increased participation by local minority and women-owned businesses. To date, Baltimore Peninsula has committed more than $132 million in contracts to Baltimore City-certified MBE/WBE firms, exceeding its initial goals with 35 percent participation for MBEs and 13 percent for WBEs.
