DHCD Seeking Developer Interest in Several City-Owned Properties

Baltimore, MD – Baltimore City’s Department of Housing & Community Development (DHCD) has issued a call for expressions of interest (EOI) to develop several city-owned properties.  DHCD is seeking submissions from experienced developers for 12 strategic locations, seven of which are former school buildings. 

The City aims to continue ongoing, large-scale revitalization efforts through promoting properties in locations that are primed for redevelopment.
