Potbelly Signs New Lease at One North Charles in Baltimore’s CBD

Retailers following residential units under construction and set for delivery

​BALTIMORE, AUGUST 12, 2015 – An affiliate of True North Management Group LLC (True North) has signed Potbelly to a 10-year retail lease at One North Charles, the 25-story, 290,691-square-foot office building directly adjacent to the Charles Center Metro Rail Station in Baltimore’s central business district (CBD).

JLL Senior Vice President Terri Harrington and Associate Peter Jackson represented True North in this lease transaction. Potbelly was represented by Bill Dickinson and Kristin Perry of Rappaport.

“Potbelly’s commitment to One North Charles, along with Under Armour’s recent announcement that it will open a 40,000-square-foot Performance Center at 10 Light St., continues the good news for Baltimore’s central business district,” said Harrington. “These openings come in anticipation of the numerous residential units under construction and about to be delivered.”

The Baltimore CBD, which had an apartment vacancy rate of just 6.3 percent at the end of the second quarter, currently has more than 2,029 units under construction and an additional 3,451 units in the planning stages, according to the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore. As of May 2015, 2,132 apartment units had already delivered, launching the critical mass needed for the retail market.

Potbelly will occupy 1,673 square feet at One North Charles with an entrance on Charles Street and off the building lobby. JLL is marketing another retail space also fronting Charles with a lobby entrance.
