Baltimore Housing Celebrates the Grand Opening of Uplands
Redevelopment creates a vibrant new community in Southwest Baltimore
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Baltimore Housing Commissioner Paul Graziano and a host of elected officials and community leaders celebrated the grand opening of new Uplands community. The Uplands Redevelopment Site is one of the premier urban mixed-income neighborhood redevelopment opportunities on the Eastern seaboard today.
"I am excited and encouraged by the bold transformation that has taken place in the Uplands community," said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. "This is a neighborhood of choice with high-quality housing opportunities that support our vision of growing Baltimore by 10,000 families in the next 10 years by attracting new residents while enhancing the quality of life for existing residents."
With over 100 acres, this master-planned community is comprised of both for-sale homes and rental apartments in a modern, mixed-income housing neighborhood that has the convenience of urban living with the amenities of new suburban homes with ample green space. The development site will consist of 761 homeownership and rental opportunities that will be built in six phases over the course of 10 years. Located one mile from Baltimore County, the Uplands site directly abuts the proposed Red Line Transit Corridor at Edmondson Village.
"The grand opening of this expansive new community signals the renaissance of southwest Baltimore," said Commissioner Graziano. "Uplands is located in a prime area for new residents. It is ideally situated near downtown Baltimore with convenient access to Washington, D.C. It’s a great place to live."
The Uplands Redevelopment is a $237 million project located developed by Uplands Visionaries LLC, which is a public-private real estate development consortium led by Pennrose Properties, LLC. The agency worked closely with the Baltimore Department of Transportation and Department of Public Works to undertake this effort.or visit:
