Low-cost housing for the elderly in the Baltimore area got another boost recently when the Department of Housing and Urban Development approved a $5.8 million loan to Associated Catholic Charities for the construction of a four-story, 125-unit apartment building in Edgemere.
The new apartment project, St. Luke's Place, will be similar to Belvedere Green, another HUD-funded project managed by Associated Catholic Charities but developed by Good Samaritan Hospital of Maryland Inc.
An article in last Sunday's real estate section confused the two federal government-subsidized projects and offered some incorrect information.
Belvedere Green, a 94-unit apartment building in Northeast Baltimore, opened a year ago this week. It has at least 300 applicants waiting for apartments, according to Pamela J. Gavin, its housing manager.
