Third Inner Harbor restaurant barge is approved

January 26, 2011|By Edward Gunts, The Baltimore Sun

Baltimore's Inner Harbor is set to acquire a third outdoor restaurant barge along Pier 4 by summer. The city's Board of Estimates today approved a request from the Baltimore Development Corp. to amend a 1999 lease agreement to allow an affiliate of the Cordish Cos. to construct a "fixed or floating barge structure" between Inner Harbor Piers 3 and 4.

According to city officials, the barge will be used by Dick's Last Resort, a restaurant that opened on Pier 4 last June. The city will receive annual rent of $7,200 plus 3 percent of gross sales from the outdoor restaurant in return for granting rights to install the barge.
