The Brentwood Celebrates Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting
The Harkins team celebrated the grand opening and ribbon cutting of The Brentwood Apartments project on Tuesday, September 26th in Baltimore, MD.
The Brentwood is a 13-story highrise mixed population development that houses mostly seniors. It is located in the Barclay neighborhood of downtown Baltimore and has 150 units. As you can see from the before and after pictures, renovations hit every part of this building. The project scope included the replacement of windows and balcony doors, new roof insulation, new interior finishes, new plumbing fixtures and risers, and new mechanical and electrical systems. In addition, accessible units and common areas were reconfigured to meet the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards.
This project is the result of HUD’s Rental Assistance Demonstration Program (RAD). Established in 2011 and launched in January of 2013, RAD is designed to preserve and improve the country’s stock of affordable rental housing by allowing public housing agencies (PHAs) and owners of HUD-assisted properties to convert units to project-based Section 8 programs. This provides an opportunity for private developers to invest in properties that are at risk of being lost from the nation’s affordable housing inventory. In 2015, the Housing Authority of Baltimore City sold The Brentwood to Telesis Corporation, our client for this renovation.
