Washington Court Apartments to be Torn Down Today

From the Baltimore Sun:

Washington Court, whose 51 boarded-up brick buildings date to the 1940s and once housed Army officers, will be razed to make way for a residential complex that should prove attractive to the influx of new residents arriving as part of the Base Realignment and Closure process.

“Thousands of new jobs are coming to Edgewood with BRAC and it’s changing the real estate market here for the better,” said Harford Councilman Dion Guthrie, who represents the area. “Talk about convenience. This development will have something for everyone.”

The 26-acre site will be reborn as a 288-unit housing complex with a community green and clubhouse, gazebo, fountain, ballfield and walking paths.
