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.

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.

During three memorable years, I spent a great amount of time in the area around East North Avenue, Calvert, Barclay and 20th streets and Guilford Avenue.
In the company of almost 2,000 young men, I attended high school at the venerable Baltimore Polytechnic Institute on North Avenue. Each school day, we arrived early in the morning by bus and streetcar (imagine that!) and usually didn't leave until late afternoon.
We enjoyed the neighborhood. We, quite literally, surveyed it as part of our class work. We played softball in the dirt lot west of Calvert Street (known as the Duck Pond, but without ducks or a pond).
