HABC Celebrates the Preservation of Affordable Housing at the Ellerslie Apartments

The Housing Authority of Baltimore City’s Executive Director Janet Abrahams along with Mayor Catherine Pugh, HUD, Telesis Corporation, the community and other partners recently participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony at The Ellerslie Apartments. The Ellerslie is a 5-story mixed population public housing building located at 601 Wyanoke Avenue in the Pen Lucy neighborhood of Baltimore that serves low-income seniors and non-elderly disabled individuals.

“Thanks to this public-private partnership, we are able to fulfill our mission of creating and providing quality affordable housing opportunities in sustainable neighborhoods for the people we serve,” said Executive Director Abrahams.

It has been more than 40 years since The Ellerslie has had a major renovation. It was built in 1974. The Project’s redevelopment will consist of the substantial rehabilitation of 117 units of affordable, low-income rental housing through a mixed-financing structure. The Project includes 70 efficiencies and 47 one bedroom units and associated community spaces.

The green rehabilitation scope involved replacing or upgrading major building systems replacing appliances and finishes, upgrading common areas and community spaces as well as improving site features and amenities in a sustainable manner.
