Druid Heights CDC has acquired six of the eight houses on the 2200 block of Callow Avenue targeted for acquisition and redevelopment for sale as homeownership units. The other two properties are in negotiation. Funding has come from Healthy Neighborhood’s, Inc. (HNI) using proceeds from the sale of vacant houses earlier acquired, redeveloped, and sold under the Neighborhood Stabilization Program-2.
HNI and Druid Heights CDC are also looking to add two extra houses to the original goal of eight.
Below are renderings created by SM+P Architects showing interior and exterior views of the redeveloped houses.
Druid Heights CDC & SM+P Architects are working closely with Baltimore City Commission for Historical & Architectural Preservation (CHAP) to ensure proper historic preservation approaches and details. The partners are working with four different models for interior space planning, including a two—dwelling unit plan. Highlights of the designs include: The full existing foot print of each house is being maintained. Each will be Energy Star Qualified new homes. The site plans will minimize impervious material providing garden and lawn spaces where possible. The house designs are making generous use of natural lighting.
