Ribbon Cutting Marks Completion of Brightview Perry Hall

On Tuesday, September 19th, Baltimore County Councilman David Marks joined Shelter Development and Harkins in “cutting the ribbon” at the completed Brightview Perry Hall community. With the addition of 63 independent living units, the facility now boasts 213 units in total.

The building is a slab-on-grade four-story wood frame building with an underground steel/Hambro basement. The new wing also offers more amenity spaces including a bistro-style dining venue with a pizza oven, a card room, an expanded sports bar, a movie theater, and a game room with a pool table, shuffle board, and poker table.

The biggest challenge of this project was keeping the operational logistics in the main building running smoothly during construction. The Harkins team did a great job with helping the Brightview team continue standard operations, including staff services, food and dining operations, and parking. A temporary parking lot was installed for construction activities so that parking was not disrupted. This extra precaution minimized the impact on parking for residents. Shelter Project Manager Andrew Crummey said “the operations team was very happy with the level of responsiveness and flexibility shown by the Harkins team.” The project was delivered ahead of schedule and on budget. The first resident in the new wing moved in immediately following the ribbon cutting.
