Simply put, Liberty Harbor East exemplifies modern living in the city’s historic harbor. The spirit of Baltimore and its ethos are manifested through Liberty’s twin towers, perched atop a vibrant, waterfront locale. Imagined by the Paterakis and Bozzuto families, the iconic design of the two buildings pays homage to a lost industrious era of shipbuilding and craftsmanship.

Liberty Harbor East offers the following community amenities:

  • Study lounge with computer workstations
  • Library with fireplace
  • Clubroom with indoor/outdoor bar
  • Infinity pool deck with grilling stations
  • Fitness center
  • Pet park with dog agility and training equipment

Additionally, Liberty Harbor East residents enjoy the ultimate convenience of living atop a two-story Whole Foods Market. Also on-site is Bin 604 Wine & Spirits, Baltimore’s go-to destination for exquisite fine wine and liquor collections.


Liberty Harbor East’s rich history

With courage and inspiring perseverance, developer John Paterakis sought to redesign Baltimore’s Harbor East. After successfully turning H&S into the country’s largest privately-owned bakery, John decided to give back to his community by embarking on the Liberty Harbor East development project.

Named after John’s sister, Liberty offers studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments and condos. All units come with quartz countertops, tile backsplashes, stainless steel appliances, and hardwood floors. And some units have balconies or terraces with harbor views. To complement the waterfront locale, Liberty’s architecture echoes the geometric shapes of boat sails.

Occupying a whole city block near Baltimore Harbor, the Liberty residences are set to change the trajectory of Harbor East’s future. Residents enjoy seamless property access with a keyless door entry system for their units, as well as 24-hour emergency maintenance teams, furnished guest suites, and curated fitness programming.

Against a historic backdrop of World War II, the structure of Liberty Harbor East mimics the powerful, yet elegant, vessels that shaped the maritime era. Through this significant inspiration, the building hopes to pay tribute to the determination and ultimate success of the city’s wartime martyrs.

“The innovative building design utilizes transitions in the different building sections and facades, which makes it interesting and unique in the urban landscape,” said an NAHB judge.

Even more, the highly-rated ButterflyMX mobile app enables residents to assign virtual keys to guests, such as family members and friends. That way, guests can enter the building even if the resident isn’t home. Virtual keys are especially helpful for on-demand service providers, like dog-walkers and housekeepers. Most importantly, residents can rest assured that their homes are looked after when they’re away.

On top of that, Liberty Harbor East residents use ButterflyMX’s latest feature, Delivery Pass, ensuring they never miss a delivery. Delivery Pass is a single-use, time-restricted PIN code that couriers use to safely place packages and food orders inside the building.
