Comprehensive Housing Assistance, Inc. (CHAI), an agency of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore, unveiled its newly minted 16-unit Fallstaff Apartment building on Thursday, Sept. 29.
The project is the first affordable housing initiative CHAI has ever completed for families in its 33-year history, consisting of one-, two- and three-bedroom units.
Mitch Posner, CHAI’s executive director, said the organization plans to continue with similar ventures for Jewish families who desire to live in the suburbs of the Greater Baltimore community.
“Buying and renovating the Fallstaff Apartments was a natural fit for CHAI,” Posner said in a prepared statement. “We modernized and beautified an aging apartment complex in the Fallstaff community so that limited income families could enjoy quality affordable family housing. It’s part of CHAI’s underlying mission to develop and enhance housing in neighborhoods with a significant Jewish presence. We see this Fallstaff project as the first opportunity for CHAI to invest its resources and development expertise to create affordable housing for families in our Northwest community.”
Among the amenities included are new kitchens, windows, bathroom components, flooring, painting, lighting, HVAC systems, as well as a new roof, landscaping and parking areas.
