Anthem House is a 292-unit mixed-use multifamily rental community in Baltimore developed by War Horse Cities, The Bozzuto Group and Solstice Partners, and designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning. Located on a former industrial site at 900 E. Fort Avenue, facing the Baltimore Harbor in the historic Locust Point-Fort McHenry neighborhood, the building massing displays a Z-shaped plan maximizing the unit vistas and creating two distinct courtyards facing the city and the harbor. The base, middle and top articulate the massing, while two urban setbacks, corner and entrance court, engage with the streetscape.
