More housing is coming to Baltimore’s Howard Street corridor. Around the corner, on Mulberry Street.
Enterprise Housing Corp. is expected this summer to start on a $22.3 million, 68-unit affordable housing development, called Mulberry at Park, at 211 West Mulberry Street between Howard and Park Avenue.
The planned construction comes a week after Washington, DC, developer Michael Hunter unveiled plans to build 300 apartments in the 300 block of North Howard Street.
The six-story building at 211 West Mulberry Street will not have direct exposure to the 400 block of North Howard Street, but it will be so tall that it will be visible from it.
The project is in mid-towns former Chinatown district – today an array of mostly vacant city-owned buildings – and will face the legendary (now closed) rowhouse restaurant of the late Morris Martick.
Enterprise secured financing for its project last month and is expected to begin construction this summer, with completion by the summer of 2016. Marks, Thomas Architects is the designer. Harkins Builders is the builder.
