Open house planned at 6 Reservoir Hill houses set for rehab

October 25, 2002

An open house for prospective buyers will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. tomorrow at six Reservoir Hill rowhouses owned or being acquired by the city, which will be sold under a new "rehabbing for homeownership" initiative announced by Baltimore Housing Commissioner Paul T. Graziano.

The initiative's first offering is limited to proposals from people who intend to be owner occupants. But with the size of some properties suitable for more than single-family use, proposals may include a rental unit as part of the redevelopment. Offers will be evaluated on the basis of financial qualification of the purchaser, quality of the redevelopment proposal and the timing for completion, the Department of Housing said.

Using $3 million in state funds, the city has targeted more than 100 vacant, blighted properties for acquisition. "As title to these properties is obtained," the department said, "they will be offered for redevelopment proposals, for both owner occupants and investors."

The event will take place at 2320 Eutaw Place, one of the six properties being offered in the first phase. The others, also open for inspection, are at 2223 Brookfield Ave., 2028 Linden Ave., 2347 Eutaw Place, 2408 Lakeview Ave. and 2551 Madison Ave. Information: 410-396-4109.
