On September 26, the Coalition for the Redevelopment of Madison Park North announced that the redevelopment of the subsidized housing complex at the southern end of Reservoir Hill would move forward with two longtime Baltimore developers.
The developers, Mark Renbaum of MLR Partners and David Bramble of MCB Real Estate, have communicated to representatives of the Friends of Reservoir Hill that they intend to work with the community to provide buildings that will be sensitive to residents’ needs and desires, as well as the style of the neighborhood. They envision the redevelopment serving as a gateway to West Baltimore and consisting of apartments, retail, and an Innovation Center to be used by MICA and Coppin State University.
Demolition of Madison Park North is slated to begin within the next couple months. Market analysis will inform the rebuilding plans that will follow. The redevelopment will encompass the one and a half blocks that was the site of the former housing complex, the liquor store at the corner of Linden and North Avenues, and a new three-story building next door to Total Health Care.
The Coalition for the Redevelopment of Madison Park North meets on the fourth Monday of every month at 7 pm at the St. Francis Neighborhood Center in Reservoir Hill.
