Tru Hotel Baltimore is Underway

Posted in: News on October 22, 2019

Having previously built two Tru Hotels, Wohlsen is honored to have been awarded the opportunity to construct another Tru Hotel in Baltimore, MD. Construction for the project started in late February 2019 and is scheduled to be complete in May of 2020.

Owned by Holladay Properties, Tru Hotel Baltimore is a soon to be 8-story, 140-unit hotel project totaling 69,126 square feet designed to comply with the Baltimore Green Energy Code. Located in downtown Baltimore, one of the major project challenges is the extremely tight fit between existing structures. This creates limitations of access and haul off from the site. Early in the project, the Wohlsen team emphasized the importance of coordinating construction logistics. By doing so, the team was able to take a proactive approach to reviewing how they would be affected by and resolve challenges associated with the existing site conditions. The team also encountered ground water five feet below existing grade. To resolve the issue, the first floor was elevated three feet above grade to address the potential flooding concerns. With the structural challenges behind the project team, they are now turning their efforts to the exterior skin, framing and finishing aspects of the project.
