Posted at 3:02 PM, Jul 16, 2018

Baltimore's Department of Housing and Community Development is new plans to development four sites scattered throughout the city, Mayor Catherine Pugh's office said in a statement Friday.

The city issued Requests for Proposals for housing and mixed-use development plans in Coldstream Homestead Montebello, Park Heights, and Historic Upton.

The plans should "contribute to the economic growth and overall vibrancy of the identified neighborhoods," the city's statement said. "Respondents are encouraged to submit proposals that complement and enhance the City of Baltimore in these communities, with a mix of affordability, commercial opportunity, and recreation."

The eligible sites include:

  • More than 17 acres of land divided into three development parcels in Park Heights
  • More than four acres of land which is part of phase 1 of the Tivoly Triangle Redevelopment Site
  • 28 city-owned townhouses in the 800 block of Harlem Avenue in Upton
  • 10 city-owned townhomes in the 800 block of Edmondson Avenue in Upton

Proposals will be evaluated by the DHCD's Development Division, considering factors like development diversity, population density, existing financing, development resources, and how the proposal would achieve certain goals as determined by neighborhood stakeholders. Proposals must comply with comprehensive neighborhood plans and help create jobs and stir economic growth. 

Proposals and plans must be submitted by Sept. 25. The city will hold a pre-proposal press conference at DCHD at 2 p.m. on July 25.
