MacKenzie to Lease Baltimore’s World Trade Center After Multi-Million Dollar Renovation Projects

MacKenzie Commercial Real Estate Services, LLC is pleased to announce they have been selected to lease Baltimore’s iconic World Trade Center following the completion of multi-million dollar renovation projects. The 1977, 31-story pentagonal office tower, designed by world-renowned architect I.M. Pei, will be rebranded as “401 East Pratt” capitalizing on recent leasing success of surrounding Pratt Street office buildings.  MacKenzie Senior Vice President, Terri Harrington, will be leading leasing efforts on behalf of the Maryland Port Administration.

“It is my goal to reacquaint brokers and businesses with this premier Pratt Street building,” stated Harrington.  “The building offers some of the best, unobstructed views of Baltimore’s harbor and surrounding city.  In some suites you feel like you are sitting on top of the water!”

Situated prominently at the water’s edge of the Inner Harbor with four of the five sides offering water views, 401 East Pratt offers tenants a central location within a continued sought-after business address, the Pratt Street Corridor.  Recent renovations have included an international conference center and marketplace on the 21st floor, upgraded common corridors and restrooms throughout the building, a state-of-the-art fitness center, as well as many HVAC mechanical system improvements.  Additionally, the main entry door system is in the process of being upgraded and several capital projects are currently in discussion.

401 East Pratt offers numerous turn-key suites available, ideal for small to larger-use tenants.  Harrington added, “we are offering some of the most competitive rental rates on Pratt Street.  The building now has the same ‘check the box’ amenities as its more expensive competitors.”
