1701 Linden Avenue is located in the Bolton Hill neighborhood in Baltimore City. Bolton Hill is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and has been home to well-known artists and public figures for decades. The neighborhood is nestled among the artistic hub of Baltimore, within a short walk of the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), the Station North Arts & Entertainment District, numerous theaters, galleries and event spaces. University of Baltimore’s campus, which has been steadily expanding and developing over the last 15 years, is also within walking distance. Public transportation is ample, including several Light Rail stops, Amtrak and MARC service from Penn Station.
The stately building fronts on Linden Avenue, with a mostly southern exposure along Wilson Street. Linden Avenue is a brick, tree-lined street with limited vehicle access and a central gazebo. The name “The Avalon Building” is attributed to an appearance in Barry Levinson’s Baltimore based film, “Avalon.” The location offers tenants proximate access to a grocery store, City parks, restaurants, cafes and all the aforementioned conveniences Bolton Hill has to offer. The building has had very limited vacancy since being purchased by the current owner.
