Chefcleo, resident of 1901 S. Charles Apartments stated:

"Interesting take on this area. The newer construction has been attracting a little older renter though, than someone just out of college. Usually, it’s a young professional that doesn’t know if they’ll have to move for a job, or a couple that’s not ready to commit to a mortgage…or even an older couple that doesn’t want to stay in a big house, or be responsible. “They want the freedom to travel & enjoy life rather than maintain a home. Also, I’ve been to several ‘gatherings’ at similar properties in D.C. I can tell you that yes, the patios are used by groups of people hanging out, or grilling. I even saw a few couples off to themselves enjoying an evening outside. A bike room is a great asset! Very few buildings in Baltimore have them.” They also boost plenty of parking, unusual in this part of SoBo Federal Hill area.
