A Baltimore City panel has selected Seawall Development Corporation to rehabilitate nine city owned homes in the 2800 block of Remington Avenue.
A spokeswoman for Baltimore Housing said she wasn’t sure if Commissioner Paul Graziano had officially signed off on the decision yet, but confirmed Seawall’s selection.
The city announced it was looking for developers to rehab the homes in late December, and set a February deadline for responding to the request for proposals for the properties. A request for proposal is a process city government goes through to solicit bids from private contractors.
Seawall has already done a large-scale renovation project in the Remington neighborhood. They rehabbed a previously vacant building at 26th and Howard streets and turned it into the mixed-use Miller’s Court Development.
“Obviously we’d be pleased if that is the result,” said Joan Floyd, president of the Remington Neighborhood Alliance.
Floyd, on behalf of the Remington Neighborhood Alliance, sent a letter to Graziano urging the city to choose Sewall.
“Of the three proposals considered by the RNA in close consultation with resident homeowners of the block, only Seawall’s proposal satisfies our essential criteria,” she wrote in the letter.
