Jefferson Apartment Group Starts Construction on 304-unit Apartment Community in Baltimore
By Adrian Maties, Associate Editor
The Jefferson Apartment Group broke ground last week on Jefferson Square at Washington Hill, a mixed-use development that includes luxury residences and retail space. It’s the company’s first major residential project in the Baltimore area.
Jefferson Square at Washington Hill is located just outside the gates of the Johns Hopkins medical campus, between N. Wolfe Street and N. Washington Street on E. Fayette Street. The five-story mixed-use development will bring 304 residential units to the area, as well as 21,000 square feet of retail. The project will also include two private courtyards, a 405-space parking structure constructed to connect each level of the building to parking, and several green building features.
Residents will enjoy a host of amenities including a theater, pub room with gaming tables and resident business/study lounge. Jefferson at Washington Square is also close to some of Baltimore’s prime neighborhoods such as Harbor East, Canton and Fell Point.
A CVS Caremark pharmacy has already signed on to the project, and 10,800 square feet of retail space are reserved for restaurant users and service retail. CBRE Baltimore’s Jeff Bach is in charge of retail leasing for Jefferson at Washington Square.
”We’re excited about this investment and are proud to be a part of the neighborhood and continue the revitalization that is already well under way,” said JAG vice Ppesident and development partner Drew Chapman. “We look forward to introducing the Baltimore market to our luxury, mixed-use product, starting with this well-located development.”
Jefferson at Washington Square will provide much needed high-end housing for the area’s growing population. The project’s developers hope to attract employees from Johns Hopkins which has 55,700 employees and students in the area.
