The World Trade Center Baltimore (WTCB) is Baltimore’s signature office building and the focal point of Maryland’s world famous Inner Harbor. It is an I.M. Pei designed, award winning 296,139 rentable square foot, 31-story pentagonal office tower built in 1977 and is the world’s tallest regular pentagonal building in the heart of Baltimore’s corporate, legal, financial and tourism center.
Sitting on Pratt Street at the water’s edge of the Baltimore Inner Harbor and between the National Aquarium and the famous Harborplace retail plaza, each side and floor present unique and memorable views of the city and harbor. The Inner Harbor promenade, a 7.4 mile brick pedestrian path surrounding the harbor, passes through the building’s waterfront arcade and connects it to the surrounding amenities. The building’s Pratt Street address positions it within the “Pratt Street Boulevard,” a cluster of the most prestigious Class A buildings in Baltimore’s Central Business District.
The World Trade Center’s location places it in the center of Baltimore’s most desired business location. Due to the city’s redevelopment efforts initiated in the early 1970’s, Pratt Street has evolved as the premier business address in Baltimore. The length of Pratt Street that spans from Camden Yards to the west and Little Italy to the east is known as the “Pratt Street Boulevard”, a cluster of “Tier 1” buildings that house the region’s most influential businesses and command the highest rents in the Baltimore Metropolitan Area. On the Harbor side of Pratt Street, the World Trade Center is “dead center” of the Pratt Street Boulevard.
Numerous public parking facilities along Pratt Street and the surrounding area are available at market rates.
The World Trade Center Baltimore is 31 stories tall, with 28 floors of rentable office area. Three upper floors and a basement contain the building’s systems and rentable storage areas. The 21st floor is the “hub floor,” with both high rise and low rise elevator service and is currently an amenities floor containing a market, a 20-person conference room for building tenants and two banquet/reception rooms. Storage spaces are located in the basement, as well as on some floors throughout the building. The basement also contains a 4,500+/- square foot loading area accessed from loading ramps off Pratt Street.
Each office floor has a versatile average floor plate of approximately 10,900 rentable square feet, with column free office areas on all five sides surrounding a central core.
Surrounded by glass on all sides, tenants and visitors see remarkable water views of the harbor and nearby attractions. High ceilings with recessed lighting reveal suspended flags from many nationalities.
The Maryland Port Administration built the World Trade Center building in 1977. Since that time the WTCB has been the most sought after office building in downtown Baltimore. The only office building that sits on the Harbor, WTCB boasts breathtaking views of the city. The building is currently on its way to being 100% leased. WTCB has distinguished floor designs that provide flexible and efficient floor space.
