A2 is a five-story, 52-unit apartment building at the site of a former restaurant parking lot in Baltimore's Fort Point neighborhood. Rounding out a new community hub, A2 is across the street from Anthem House, the comprehensive redevelopment of a former GE site by the same team, which includes 292 apartments, 449 parking spaces, and 20,000 square feet of ground floor retail space.

A2’s 52 new homes include studios and two-bedroom apartments. The new building will feature a landscaped setback of up to 25 feet facing the alley on Boyle Street and a nine-foot setback facing Lawrence Street.

A primary goal of the project is to activate and improve the walkability of Lawrence Street and to weave together the pedestrian experience between Federal Hill and the Locust Point waterfront.
