With an elegance that complements the historic architecture of the Capitol Hill neighborhood, this cooperative housing serving all races and incomes has received eight national awards for excellence. The Ellen Wilson neighborhood revitalization is nationally recognized as one of the most creative solutions to replacing abandoned, formally segregated public housing.
The Barclay neighborhood is located in central Baltimore, a mid-point between Johns Hopkins University and the Baltimore Harbor. Telesis has been working with the community and other local stakeholders for the past 10 years to regenerate over 20 city blocks into a beautiful mixed-income, rental and homeownership community with retail and high-quality green space.

Telesis Corp’s $85M transformation of vacant and dilapidated housing in the area between the Station North Arts and Entertainment District and Charles Village includes a mix of affordable and market-rate housing. Barclay will add a new multifamily, mixed-use development with 57 units that will begin leasing by the end of the year, says Telesis Baltimore director Catherine Stokes.
The third phase of North Barclay Green (rendering) will include one-, two- and three-bedroom units, with rents between $700 and $900/month. Built with federal tax credits, renters must earn 60% less than the area median income. Telesis is also negotiating with a yoga studio and café as part of the space. The developer may add some arts programming to the mix.

Today, St. Louis stands at the cusp of real and, dare we say, permanent change for the better. The catalyst is the decision by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency to build a gigantic new western headquarters precisely at the intersection of Jefferson and Cass. The project will cost $1.75 billion and is expected to provide jobs for nearly 15,000 construction workers. Contractual terms require that one-quarter of those jobs be filled by workers from the immediate surrounding communities.
Last week, developer Paul McKee sat with us to outline the next major step stemming from NGA’s decision. His NorthSide Regeneration company, the top private landholder in the area, is teaming with Washington-based residential developer Telesis Corp. and CRG Real Estate Solutions to construct 500 new housing units over the next five years adjacent to the NGA site.
