BALTIMORE - Harborplace, Baltimore's signature tourism attraction for more than 30 years, has been sold to a New York-based firm.
Christopher Schardt, senior general manager of Harborplace, tells The Daily Record of Baltimore ( http://bit.ly/RiL5Mh) that Harborplace is being sold to Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp. He did not reveal the price; the deal is expected to close in November.
Ashkenazy is buying the property from General Growth Properties, which bought Harborplace from its original developer, the Rouse Co. in 2004. Ashkenazy recently purchased Union Station in Washington.
Harborplace was built on about 3 acres of waterfront. It draws about 17 million visitors each year.
