There were rubble-strewn blocks and vacant and abandoned houses. The neighborhood's main thoroughfare was an eyesore, a street other reporters at The Sun called "gritty Greenmount."

Barclay Transforming from 'Gritty Greenmount' to Trendy New Haven

JANUARY 27, 2017 | The Baltimore Sun

In the heart of this city, a quiet transformation is taking place. As leaders who have long worked to improve living and working conditions in Central Baltimore, the two of us — a nonprofit executive and a long-time neighborhood leader — have had front row seats to the rebirth of the city's core over the past decade.

A new $10 million fund established with investments from about a dozen local banks and philanthropic organizations will provide loans to pay for projects in central Baltimore, starting with the rehabilitation of a dozen vacant homes in Barclay. The Central Baltimore Future Fund will be administered by The Reinvestment Fund, which is based in Philadelphia and has an office in Baltimore. It is an outgrowth of efforts from neighborhood groups and leaders at the Johns Hopkins University to work together to improve 10 neighborhoods near the university in central Baltimore.

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.
