LOCATION:
332-340 S. Highland Avenue, known as 332-336 on tax records, is located in the Highlandtown neighborhood in Southeast Baltimore. Highlandtown is among Baltimore’s best known neighborhoods, having been a hub of community life in the southeastern portion of the City for more than 150 years. The neighborhood has been experiencing a renaissance over the past 20 years. New entertainment venues, restaurants and stores complement the familiar, long-standing businesses that have made the location home for decades. New and renovated apartment buildings are positioned throughout the neighborhood, along with countless home renovations and new construction. Proximity to some of the City’s largest employers, as well as convenient access to major highways and commuter routes, makes the location ideal for residents and consumers of all types.

The property is located at the corner of S. Highland Avenue and Bank Street in the heart of the neighborhood. The Creative Alliance, Southeastern Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library, Matthew’s Pizzeria and dozens of other noteworthy businesses are within a few blocks. Johns Hopkins East Baltimore and Johns Hopkins Bayview are each within 2 miles. Patterson Park is less than one-quarter mile west.

The auction provides an opportunity to purchase a property in a prime location with a long rental history. The opportunity to continue the value-add initiatives of the current owner further enhances the long term revenue potential at the site. With the existing vacancy, further leasing would boost revenue quickly.
