Robinson Overlook Breaks Ground
Construction for the $18.7 million mixed-income housing development known as Robinson Overlook is now underway at 7410 Grace Drive. In lieu of a large public groundbreaking celebration, a small ceremonial event was held at the site on August 20, 2020, to commemorate the start of construction.
Nestled on a 3.8-acre site near Robinson Nature Center, Robinson Overlook has embraces the long-term goal by state and local housing experts and Howard County leaders to expand high-quality housing options for area residents at various income levels in need of affordable homes.
Robinson Overlook will consist of five residential buildings that offer single-level apartments and townhomes. Creating a mixed-income community was an emphasized goal. Of the 48 total units, 43 will be reserved for lease to residents earning a range of up to 60% of the area median income, with five more units leased without income restrictions. It will include 8 one-bedroom, 19 two-bedroom, and 21 three-bedroom units. Eight of the units will be set aside for persons with disabilities.
