HarborView Condominium is a residential high-rise in Baltimore, Maryland. The building, which is a part of the HarborView complex, rises 29 floors and 342 feet (104 m) in height,[1] and stands as the 16th-tallest building in the city. The structure was completed in 1993 and was built on the site of the old Bethlehem Steel Shipyards graving dock which was demolished in 1983.[2] HarborView Condominium was designed by architectural firms Design Collective, Inc. and SHK3 Architectural Interdesign.[1]

The HarborView complex was originally planned to include two additional 26-story residential towers.[3] However, as the complex is located on the Inner Harbor waterfront, the plan received much criticism for its potential to block views of the harbor.[3] The proposal for the two additional towers was eventually blocked by Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon in August 2007.[3] However, the structures were then redesigned, and a new proposal for a 17-story Pinnacle at HarborView has received construction approval from the city.[4] A redesign of the third building in the complex, HarborView Phase 3, has yet to receive city approval.[5]
