An architectural beacon for port cities around the world looking to bring downtown retail to the harbor's edge.


Ashkenazy Acquisition Corporation partnered with MG2 to reimagine Harborplace, a historic retail center located in the heart of Downtown Baltimore. MG2’s design reestablishes the location as a premiere destination for both locals and tourists to shop, dine and soak in the ambiance of the city.

MG2’s design team activated the street edges by creating outward-facing retail and restaurant spaces that stretch from the city-side of the development through to the waterside, drawing in crowds from surrounding museums and sports stadiums.

In celebration of Baltimore’s rich heritage as a port town, MG2 channeled an industrial maritime feel into the buildings’ aesthetics, preserving the integrity of the original structures while blending materials from the past and present.
