BALTIMORE-Doors to the new Harlem Gardens Senior Apartments have officially opened today with a ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome the $8.6 million redevelopment endeavor. Harlem Gardens is the first phase of a 24-block redevelopment initiative in West Baltimore’s downtrodden Harlem Park neighborhood.

The 94-unit structure also marks the first new housing construction to take place in the community in a quarter century. Nonprofit development organization Harlem Park Revitalization Corp. and Bank of America are behind the renewal endeavor.

Located at 1700 Edmondson Ave., Harlem Gardens has other much-needed amenities, aside from low-income residential space, to serve the community. The property also features a pharmacy, a physician’s office, and a dine-in café–the only ones in the Harlem Park environs.
