The Greens at Irvington Mews
sustainability is in the name
Overlooking the campus of Mount St. Joseph High School in Baltimore, Irvington Mews is an independent living apartment building with an emphasis on sustainable construction and systems. The community includes 18 two-bedroom and 82 one-bedroom apartments for seniors and adults with disabilities who earn up to 50 percent of the area median income. Twenty of the apartments are set aside for residents with disabilities who are under 62.

There is public outdoor amenity space at each floor, and the community room is placed on the 4th floor so residents can enjoy the view.
