Metro Heights Celebrates Grand Opening
The Harkins team attended the grand opening of Metro Heights at Mondawmin on Thursday, November 29th in Baltimore, MD.
Located at the intersection of Reisterstown Road and Liberty Heights Avenue, Metro Heights is a new landmark building that offers 70 apartments for the area’s workforce. The four-story wood frame building was built over a one-level cast-in-place garage and offers a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom affordable and market rate units.
The site was previously comprised of 12 vacant and abandoned lots and structures, totaling around one acre. This particular area in Baltimore has been a major focus of redevelopment, encompassing residential, retail, office, institutional, and cultural project types. Metro Heights will serve as a landmark in the community and a source of hope, opportunity and pride for residents, neighbors, and visitors to the area.
It was built to LEED Silver standards, creating a healthier and more energy efficient environment for the residents. The units include Energy Star windows and appliances, high-efficiency heating and ventilation systems, water-conserving plumbing, and stormwater management. Resident amenities include in-unit washers and dryers, a club room on the top floor, a game room, a business center, a fitness room and yoga studio, and 33 on-site parking spaces.
It is situated within walking distance of Mondawmin Mall, the Parks and People Foundation campus, and Druid Hill Park, along with many transit hubs.
