CHASEN COMPANIES ANNOUNCES PUTTSHACK AS THE FIRST RETAIL TENANT IN THE WHITNEY
Premiere mini golf experience will open in the Harbor East mixed-use property in 2024
BALTIMORE, MD (July 11, 2023)— Chasen Companies is excited to announce its strategic partnership with Puttshack, the world's premier tech-infused upscale mini golf experience. Puttshack is the first major retailer to sign a lease at The Whitney, Chasen’s five-story mixed-use property at 600 S. Caroline St. This collaboration marks an important milestone as Puttshack's first venture in Maryland. It is slated to welcome visitors in late 2024.
Puttshack will span 25,000 square feet on the ground floor of The Whitney, a historically significant five-story mixed-use property developed by Chasen Companies, located just steps from vibrant dining destinations and marinas. The property, formerly the home of the historic Meyer Seed Company for nearly a century, pays homage to Baltimore's rich history while embracing modern design and inventive technology.
“Bringing Puttshack, a national entertainment brand, to Harbor East will provide a unique, unforgettable experience for residents, visitors, and employees in the area,” said Drew Peace, COO of Chasen Companies. “The concept aligns with our overall vision for the community–creating incredible, modern spaces that support the growth of residences and retail in the heart of Baltimore City.”
Puttshack’s competitive socializing experience caters to families, friends, and colleagues seeking unparalleled entertainment. The venue will feature four state-of-the-art, tech-driven nine-hole mini golf courses powered by Puttshack's renowned patented Trackaball™ technology. This revolutionary gameplay element, equipped with automated scoring and interactive games at each hole, will redefine the mini-golf experience. The venue will also house two full-service bars, an outdoor patio with seating for nearly 50 patrons, and a private event space accommodating up to 100 guests.
"We are thrilled to partner with Chasen Companies to bring Puttshack, a leading entertainment brand, to Harbor East," said Dave Diamond, President of Puttshack.
