BALTIMORE — More affordable housing is coming to west Baltimore.
Homes at the intersection of Park Heights Avenue and Rosewood Avenue are being redeveloped into the Renaissance Row Apartments.
Tuesday, Pennrose and Park Heights Renaissance held a groundbreaking celebration for the new development. It will include 84 apartment units. Eight will be set aside for residents earning up to 30% of the area median income. The rest are reserved for residents earning up to 60%.
"This is not just going to be about the new apartment building, this is about building a better community through building better people in Park Heights,” said Baltimore City Council President Brandon Scott. “We know what is possible in Park Heights and if it’s possible in Park Heights then it’s possible anywhere in Baltimore."
The development also includes on-site amenities, management offices, and 2,300 square feet of office space for the new headquarters for Park Heights Renaissance.
