A development team that includes Harbor East developer Michael Beatty has been selected to build a mixed-use retail and residential building at a busy corner in Charles Village that has been vacant for years.
The 1.1-acre property located at 3200 St. Paul St. is owned by Johns Hopkins University, which purchased the site in 2009. It formerly held rowhouses that were acquired and razed about six years ago in preparation for a new development by Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse that failed because of the company’s financial woes.
Hopkins officials said Friday they had selected new developers headed by Beatty Development Group LLC and Virginia-based Armada Hoffler from more than 27 proposals submitted for the redevelopment. The project does not have a start date.
Hopkins will remain in control of the land, university officials said.
Beatty is currently developing a new regional headquarters for Exelon Corp. at Harbor Point. Armada Hoffler has built a hotel and conference center at Emory University in Georgia and extensive projects at Hampton University in Tidewater Virginia.
