Yet another downtown commercial building is being converted to apartments.
The red-brick building at 300 Cathedral St., known as Odd Fellows Hall, is currently being refurbished by a Washington-based developer, Broadwater Capital LLC, the Downtown Partnership said in a statement Monday.
The building will contain 59 market-rate apartments and will begin leasing next summer, the partnership said. It is situated between West Pleasant and West Saratoga streets.
“There continues to be a significant demand for professionals to move closer to their work and 300 Cathedral's proximity to Baltimore's City Center, Mount Vernon and the Westside provides tenants a Class-A living space that is within walking distance to major businesses, the Inner Harbor, Medical Centers and local restaurants,” said Ahmad Hajj, a principal with Broadwater Capital, in the partnership's statement.
Broadwater purchased the 72,000 square foot building in September for $1.1 million, according to state tax records. Those records indicate the building was completed in 1841.
