Chapin Davis Investments, Inc. is expanding and relocating its headquarters to 1411 Clarkview Road in Baltimore, MD, where it has leased 8,120 square feet. Kyle Bell and Scott Wingrat of Cresa represented Chapin Davis in the transaction, and Patrick M. Smith and Paul F. Obrecht, III, SIOR of Blue & Obrecht Realty represented the owner, Clarkview LLC.
Chapin Davis Investments, Baltimore’s oldest full-service financial services firm, formerly occupied 5,823 SF at Cross Keys – 5100 Falls Road. The firm will occupy the entire one-story, Class A, standalone building in the Clarkview Business Park, with a projected move-in date of April 2017.
The building was converted from industrial to office space in 2016 to include a new exterior, windows, HVAC system, and a modern floorplan for a collaborative work environment. It features ample parking and landscaping, including an outdoor patio. Located in the Falls Road Corridor, it is adjacent to the Bare Hills Corporate Center, with retail amenities and a fitness center within walking distance.
According to Chapin Davis CEO Talbot Jones Albert, IV, “Our lease was expiring, and there was the need for relocate to accommodate our growth, enhance the brand, and increase visibility. Our plans included a space with a collaborative work environment, fostering the next generation of financial advisors with an established team business model.”
