Hanover Cross Street is a 299-unit institutional-grade multifamily apartment building with an additional 12,000 square feet of retail located in Baltimore, MD. The transaction closed on November 17, 2021. Bill Roohan & Brian Margerum from CBRE brokered the transaction. Stephen West & Matthew Wallach from Walker Dunlop secured debt from Freddie Mac.


“The DC-Baltimore corridor is one the strongest markets for multifamily in the US. Its resilient industry mix and high job growth will directly benefit performance of the rental market over time. We are excited to be acquiring such a premier asset in the heart of Federal Hill – which is among the most attractive neighborhoods of the submarket. The acquisition of Hanover Cross Street allows us to continue our strategy of acquiring irreplaceable assets for value creation and wealth preservation,” said Jacques Bessoudo, Managing Partner of Galium Capital.


Hanover Cross Street is a luxury apartment community in Baltimore, MD which was developed in 2018 and is located at 101 W Cross St, Baltimore MD, 21320. The property features 299 units, world-class amenities and 12,000 square feet of retail.


Units at Hanover Cross Street range from studio to two bedroom floor plans and 557 to 1,312 square feet. Residences feature large bedrooms; custom space-saving double-hung walk-in closets; spacious kitchens with stainless steel appliances and designer custom cabinetry; spa-inspired bathrooms with large soaking tubs, dual-vanity countertops and walk-in showers; wood-style flooring and full-size high-efficiency washer and dryers. Select residences feature private terraces and built-in computer desks.


Residents will have access to world class amenities such as a controlled-access parking garage with dedicated car charging stations, a cyber lounge with high-speed WiFi and iMac computers, conference areas with SMART TV's, a fully-equipped residents' clubhouse, media rooms with large screen TV's and surround-sound, and a 24-hour fitness center with tablet-integrated cardio machines.


Outdoor amenities include a resort-like grand courtyard with outdoor pool, in-pool chaise lounges and areas for sunning; lush landscaping, grilling and dining areas with social spaces for gathering; and an open-air loggia with large screen TV's and cozy seating areas.


“Given the strong market dynamics in the DC-Baltimore region, the Mid-Atlantic region has been a major area of focus for us. We are thrilled to be entering the Federal Hill submarket with this acquisition, which has proved to me one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the metro,” said Jonathan Slomianski, Director of Acquisitions at Galium Capital.


Hanover Cross Street is located a short distance to Marc Train Camden Station, Cross Street Market, Baltimore's Inner Harbor, and M&T.
