100 East Pratt Street is a building located in Baltimore, Maryland. The building originally began construction in 1973 by Emery Roth & Sons, though it halted in 1975.[1] In 1977 assessed values of downtown properties declined including 100 E Pratt, leased by IBM.[2] Construction was then completed and developed in 1992 by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.[3] The building stands at 418 ft. (128 m), containing twenty-eight floors. This tower with over 110,000 square feet (10,000 m2) consists of aluminum, glass and steel.[4] In 1997, the building's firm was bought by Boston Properties, and later bought by Wells Real Estate in 2005 for $205 million, and was added to the Wells REIT II portfolio.[5][6] In 2013, the portfolio became its own company and the name was changed to Columbia Property Trust.[7]

The trusswork on the roof of the building, while attractive, is not ornamental: it provides suspension for the southern facade. This is visible in the image as the outer layer of offices which protrude from the original structure.
