The Jordan



Somerset  Eutaw Place Partners in partnership with the non-profit Memorial  Apartments Corporation (MAC), has completed the construction of The  Jordan Apartments in Baltimore, a new 62 unit market-rate apartment  building with a neighborhood gastro pub, on the ground floor. The Jordan  represents the second phase of redevelopment of the original 3.6 acre  site of Memorial Apartments located in the Bolton Hill neighborhood of  Baltimore. The original site  was subdivided to provide, in the first phase, for the $26 million  renovation and preservation of 266 affordable units at Memorial  Apartments — now renamed Linden Park Apartments -- and to build new  market rate apartments to create a new mixed income community. The award  winning Linden Park Apartments provides for affordable senior living in  a state-of-the-art building with a wealth of amenities and services.

The  Jordan Apartments has a  fitness center, a community space with a full  kitchen and a roof top terrace, bike storage, a dog park, and gardens. A  new gastro pub called the Tilted Row, operated by the owners of Cafe  Fili in Mount Vernon, is on the ground floor. The building is within  walking distance of Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), University  of Baltimore (UB), University of Maryland mid-town campus and State  Center and has an easy access to bus lines and the metro. The building  is certified at the National Green Building Standards and Energy Star  Homes. The modern architecture fits the scale and character of the  surrounding historic neighborhood.

The  redevelopment of the site as a mixed-use, mixed-income community  fulfills the neighborhood vision established in the HUD Choice  Neighborhood Plan and fills in a “missing tooth” of the urban fabric on  Eutaw Place and McMechen Streets. The Jordan is catalyzing a  revitalization of the Eutaw Place corridor, tying Bolton Hill and  neighborhoods west of Eutaw Place together into a vibrant mixed income  neighborhood, in a transit-oriented location. The development represents  the re-establishment of this important intersection by replacing what  was a run-down surface parking lot with a beautifully designed apartment  building. With MICA and UB in the neighborhood and easy access to  downtown, the Jordan is an ideal location for students, administrators,  young professionals, and empty nesters. 

Next  door to the Jordan along Eutaw Place, Somerset Development Company and  MAC have partnered again to purchase the Union Hall with the intention  of transforming it into a Community Arts, Education and Training Center  to bring the surrounding neighborhoods on both sides of Eutaw Place  together.

The  development was financed with $11.7 million FHA insured first mortgage  through Wells Fargo Bank's lending division under HUD's 221 (d) (4)  program and $2.5 million of Developer's equity.
