In March 2017, East Baltimore Development Inc. (EBDI), selected the development team consisting of Cross Street Partners, Apex Building Group and City Life Historical Properties to revitalize this East Baltimore community.

 The project consists of 51 vacant rowhouses and 10 vacant lots located within EBDI. The project is adjacent to Henderson Hopkins School and bounded by Ashland Ave (North), N Collington St (West), N Patterson Park Ave (East), and E Madison St (South).

Each property requires a gut rehabilitation while strategically committing to the preservation of its historic elements. The design allows for potential ground floor master bedrooms, which is in high demand for mature families staying in Baltimore City. Each house will consist of 2 – 4 bedrooms and 2.5 – 3.5 bathrooms with an option for a finished basement. Parking pads will be installed, which is a response to the limited parking available in the surrounding area. Our open floor plan and commitment to environmentally sensitive upgrades aligns with current market trends giving us a product that buyers want. The option for a rooftop deck allows for additional outdoor living space for families interested in growing in place. Site work includes utility upgrades, alley widening, and landscape installation, all of which will make the neighborhood feel like a community. By removing the blighted properties and improving the street scape, we intend to restore life into the community.

Ten (10) units will be designated as affordable and reserved for families making at or below 80% of the Area Media Income (AMI). Our analysis shows that the maximum house price for the affordable units is $250,000. Programming initiatives, including home ownership counseling, will ensure the families are prepared to be successful residents. We are committed to providing these units at an affordable price.
