City Arts Apartments
ReBUILD co-developed the first phase of City Arts with Homes for America and Jubilee Baltimore, creating the 69-unit City Arts Apartments. This project redeveloped part of a vacant block into quality affordable housing designed to serve local artists in the Greenmount West neighborhood.
The building features studio, one-, and two-bedroom units with high ceilings, large windows, and hardwood floors. Select units also include a “slop sink” to accommodate a live-work arrangement for artists. In addition, the building includes a ground level gallery and performance space open to the public. The building is adjacent to the new Open Works facility.
The Apartments are part of ReBUILD’s $17 million investment in the larger City Arts I development in Greenmount West. The second phase of the development includes 9 energy-efficient, two-bedroom rental homes, which are part of the City of Baltimore Commission for Historical & Architectural Preservation program and feature stained glass front door transoms and distinctive iron flower boxes created by artisans. A third phase, City Arts Townhomes, includes 7 new for-sale single-family homes featuring artists’ lofts and top floor decks.
