Baltimore’s Harbor East completes $9 million renovation

A $9 million renovation at Harbor East Marina in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor finished in early June in time much of the summer season.

The two-phase project began in 2016 and included replacing all 10 of the floating docks, upgrading shore power to 100-amp three-phase, and dredging the northwest corner of the marina to 7 feet, as well as updating the boaters’ lounge and adding a new event space. Average depth throughout the majority of the marina is 14 feet.

“Harbor East has become known throughout the region as one of Baltimore’s most vibrant neighborhoods, featuring best-in-class design, contemporary amenities, and renowned shops and restaurants,” said Tim O’Donald, president of Harbor East Management Group, in a statement. “It is only fitting that our marina reflect the quality and modernity of the development in order to provide boaters the same elevated experience we provide on land.”

One of the new amenities is a 1,600-square-foot party pad for marina events and private gatherings.

The renovation was partially funded through two grant programs for recreational boating facilities – the Federal Boating Infrastructure Grant Program (BIG) offered by U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (a $1.6 million) and the Maryland State Waterway Improvement Fund (WIF) offered by Maryland Department of Natural Resources ($900,000).

Harbor East Marina is a 184-slip facility outside the Four Seasons Hotel with 500 feet of alongside dockage for annual, seasonal and transient guests. Oasis Marinas has managed the property since 2015. For more information, visit www.harboreastmarina.com.
