In East Baltimore, the Chapel NDP Apartments, 173 units of low-income housing near the Johns Hopkins medical complex, are being torn down to make way for upscale housing and a commercial district.

Over the past few decades, many people called Chapel Apartments home, celebrating birthdays, graduations and weddings, while drugs and crime became a problem in the area in recent years. As the demolition of the complex neared, some residents resisted their impending eviction.

The new $80 million development project will include townhouses, apartments, shops and offices.
