BALTIMORE — A group led by Byrnes & Associates Inc. has purchased Hotel RL Baltimore Inner Harbor located at 207 E. Redwood St. in downtown Baltimore. The locally based investment firm will lead the $18.5 million redevelopment strategy that will convert the 10-story hotel into a 130-unit apartment building. The units will comprise studios, “junior one-bedroom” and one-bedroom apartments spanning 400 to 800 square feet with modern furnishings.
Byrnes & Associates expects to redevelop the building, which was first developed as an office building, and lease the units in 18 months. The development team includes Brad Byrnes and Kemp Byrnes of Byrnes & Associates; investors Jay Litke and Moe Krohn of Kove Group LLC who will be the general contractors performing all construction activities; and investor/asset manager Brendan Ferrara of Carm Capital LLC.
