Five New Townhomes Planned for East Randall St.

| March 14, 2013 | 6 Comments

The surge of new residential construction in Baltimore continues as five new townhomes are planned for the spot of a now-vacant warehouse at 40 E. Randall Street at the corner of Marshall St. in South Baltimore.  The developers will demolish the 5600-square foot warehouse and replace with five new homes facing Marshall St.

The new homes will be 1750 square feet and include a red brick front interior, two master bedrooms, a lower bedroom, a roof deck, a one-car garage as well as a one-car parking pad accessible through common alley space, and more.  The homes will also have a “green” roof made of vegetation that will filter rain water through the soil. All of the surrounding sidewalks will be repaved before completion.

Environmental work has already begun on the site and they are expecting to break ground in May.  The homes are projected to hit the market around September with an asking price in the ballpark of $400,000.

The South Baltimore Neighborhood Association (SBNA) offered a letter of support for a variance the project is seeking and it will go before the Baltimore Board of Municipal Zoning and Appeals on March 19th.

    Wow- this neighborhood is really growing. That is great news! 😉

    what about parking? you know that they are going to rent out each bedroom to yuppies and they will have 4 parking passes plus their two spots.

    • These are basically two and a half bedroom homes that will probably go for over $400k. It isn’t profitable to rent out something like that, and I’m sure most of the buyers will be a couple, single or small family with no more than two cars. The lower bedroom in many of these new construction is probably not even big enough for a bedroom.

      I think we’ll be fine, it will create a few extra spots Randall St that were previously blocked off as driveways and it gets rid of a huge eyesore.

  • Parking in South Baltimore is really going to become more of a nightmare than it already is! Parking garages wonlt be the answer. The circulator is the next best thing. Too bad South Baltimore balked on the subway in the 1970s!

    Over developing the area into oblivion. More traffic, less parking, increased housing stocks in a fragile economy. A time bomb waiting to explode. STOP THE DEVELOPERS BEFORE ITS TO LATE
