Proposals sought for city land project

August 26, 2008|By Lorraine Mirabella

Baltimore officials are seeking proposals for a mixed-use project on 1.6 acres in the city's southeastern neighborhoods of Jonestown and Washington Hill that would include a mix of housing, offices, shops and parking.

The project on eight parcels along East Lombard Street and South Central Avenue would be built just east of Albemarle Square, a development of 343 market-rate and affordable town houses and apartments. The city and the Housing Authority of Baltimore City own the mostly vacant property, the Baltimore Development Corp. said yesterday.

Officials said they envision development serving as a gateway to the downtown business district and as a northern gateway to the Inner Harbor and Little Italy, Fells Point and Harbor East. The site sits near development along the Central Avenue corridor, including Harbor East.

Developers' proposals are due to the BDC on Oct. 21.
