Paca House Celebrates Ribbon Cutting
The Harkins team attended the ribbon cutting of the Paca House Renovation and Addition on Monday, March 9th in Baltimore, MD.
Originally an adaptive reuse of an old firehouse and contiguous building in 1996, the Paca House apartments offer 92 units of permanent housing and support services to low-income individuals that are Veterans or chronically homeless Baltimore City residents. The project included the construction of four efficiency and 12 one-bedroom apartments into a new West Wing over a podium along the rear property line. The five-story addition was previously a vacant strip of surplus land along the northern property line (North Wing) that expanded the footprint of the existing five-story building, allowing for the replacement of apartment units made up of 41 efficiencies, 41 one-bedroom units, and 10 market rate apartments. Apartments feature wood plank flooring, upgraded appliances, new kitchen cabinets, and ample closet space.
Amenity spaces include an outdoor courtyard, a community room with a kitchenette, resource rooms for on-site resident services, a large lobby area, on-site laundry, bike storage, and free Wi-Fi in the building’s common areas. On-site resident services include case management, counseling, and referrals to the local Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
