East Baltimore Housing and Neighborhood Fair planned

The long-planned revitalization of 88 acres north of the Johns Hopkins East Baltimore campus is taking shape, with new restaurants, a national pharmacy, the opening of the “929” apartment building, restoration of historic buildings and the construction of a $40 million public school and early childhood center on tap for 2012 and 2013.

Johns Hopkins is a partner in this ambitious project, joining East Baltimore Development Inc., Baltimore City, The Annie E. Casey Foundation, Forest City–New East Baltimore Partnership and others.

In order for Johns Hopkins employees and others to learn more about housing opportunities, community resources and the plans for East Baltimore neighborhoods, representatives from the Johns Hopkins Live Near Your Work program, East Baltimore residential developers, the East Baltimore Community School, EBDI and other local associations will hold an East Baltimore Housing and Neighborhood Fair from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Monday, April 30, in Turner Concourse. The event is sponsored by Forest City–New East Baltimore Partnership.

Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP to worklife@jhu.edu by Thursday, April 26. Simply enter “EB Fair” in the subject line and your name in the text.
