Transforming Vacant Properties into Community Assets
In addition to providing high quality affordable rental housing throughout northwest Baltimore, CHAI is creating housing opportunity for homebuyers through the purchase, renovation and resale of formerly vacant and blighted homes. In partnership with St. Ambrose Housing Aid Center, CHAI recently gutted and rehabilitated four row homes on Oakley Avenue – a quiet tree-lined street in Central Park Heights in close proximity to Pimlico Elementary, a Baltimore City 21st Century School. We are excited to announce that the renovations are nearly complete on all four homes, which now feature gourmet kitchens, energy efficient heating and cooling systems, and new flooring throughout. CHAI is proud to contribute to the revitalization of Park Heights, by expanding the stock of affordable homes for sale in the area. CHAI is grateful to the Goldseker Foundation and the Maryland and Baltimore City Departments of Housing and Community Development for supporting this work.
