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. Additionally, the City seeks to determine potential re-use opportunities for these sites. Through the EOI process, the City will establish a list of interested, qualified firms, which could lead to the issuing of Requests for Proposals. The City began utilizing the EOI process in December of 2019 as a streamed-lined, cost-effective way to measure developer interest in various City-owned properties.

The following properties are included in the current EOI:

  • Castle Street Bundle (1900 blocks of N. Castle and N. Chester St. and 2025 E. 20th St.)
  • North Mount Street Bundle (517-541 N. Mount Street)
