In the Neighborhood
Broadway Overlook


If you work on the East Baltimore campus, you have probably noticed by now Broadway Overlook, the new community of townhouses and apartments rising on the old Church Home Hospital property near the southwest corner of Broadway and East Fayette. Situated on one of the highest points of the city and designed to echo the architecture of the surrounding Washington Hill, Broadway Overlook is attracting students and professionals alike, including more than a dozen Hopkins nurses, residents and graduate students already in residence.

Rose Gonzales, a nurse on Weinberg 4, had been commuting by bus from White Marsh until the end of August, when she became the first tenant to move in. “It’s affordable, very new and right across the street,” she says. “I don’t have to worry about transportation. I can leave my apartment just minutes before I’m due at work.”

Broadway Overlook was constructed primarily to house the former residents of Broadway Homes, a low-income development east of Broadway that was razed three years ago. It was funded in part by a $21.3 million federal grant. But while it attracts tenants eligible for federal subsidies, it also draws those seeking market-rate housing. In fact, the community has been hailed as a model, mixed-income development, one of few that employ a variety of facades and styles to seamlessly integrate housing for occupants of disparate income levels.

In all, there are 166 units, both in new construction and in restored portions of the historic hospital. Of the 132 rental units, 48 are market rate. Of the 34 units for sale, 29 are market rate.

Non-subsidized apartments and townhouses rent from $730 to $2,200 per month. Apartments in the old hospital and its new annex will be available starting in March. (Sorry, the room in which Edgar Allen Poe died is already taken.) Townhouses are priced from $119,900 to $174,900.* As of mid-October, all but five of the 34 units had been sold.
