Restaurants Leaving Harborplace

Published by at 5:00 pm under Downtown,Restaurants

Two long-standing restaurants have recently closed their inner-harbor locations. California Pizza Kitchen closed at the end of June, following Capital City Brewing Company’s exit last year (okay not so recent). After 10 years at it’s inner harbor location, CPKs closing is surprising because every time I walked by it business seemed good. I’m guessing they are holding out for a better option downtown with cheaper rent. But it will be hard to beat that location during the summer tourist season. Hunt Valley and Annapolis are now the closest CPK locations to Baltimore. Pictured: “The Original BBQ Pizza” – Good stuff.

    Rumor has it that General Growth Properties (which manages the pavilions) has really raised the rent at harbor place. I think it’ll push a lot of the restaurants and small retailers out. I expect that they’ll try to combine some of the smaller spaces to bring in larger national retail that can afford it…like what they did with Urban Outfitters.

    I know rent was ridiculous in the early 90′s when we ran Cajun Joe’s (a chicken place next to the old Johnny Rockets). And then you have to make enough during the tourist season to survive the long winter dead season. It’s a tough biz.
