Baltimore-firm Warhorse and Virginia-based FD Stonewater have selected MacKenzie Management Company, LLC, to provide property management and maintenance services for their projects, Belvedere Square and Franklin Ridge, respectively.The addition of the two projects adds more than 250,000 square feet to MacKenzie’s portfolio, which now totals nearly 6.75 million square feet.
Purchased by Warhorse in June 2013, Belvedere Square is a 110,000 square foot retail center and a Baltimore icon. Known to many as North Baltimore’s gathering spot, Belvedere Square is at the crossroads of it all, located at the southeast corner of York Road and Northern Parkway. The project has a reputation for bringing together emerging artisans, boutiques, and family favorites, creating a dynamic mix of retail shopping, dining, and convenient service options. MacKenzie’s brokerage division, MacKenzie Commercial Real Estate Services, LLC, is currently providing leasing services for the project.
Situated in the heart of the White Marsh business community, Franklin Ridge consists of three buildings located at 9910, 9920, and 9930 Franklin Square Drive totaling approximately 140,000 square feet. Currently fully leased, the project’s tenants include Johns Hopkins, Staryer University, and The Traffic Group. FD Stonewater, a boutique real estate brokerage, investment, development, and asset management firm out of Virginia purchased the project in November.
