Episcopal Housing acquired Ashburton Apartments in September 2012 after the property was foreclosed. Although it had recently been renovated, the previous renovation was partial, and still needed updating to bring Ashburton Apartments up to EHC’s standard of quality for affordable housing. EHC modernized the plumbing and electrical systems, added a sprinkler system, equipped each unit with new appliances, and added a small administrative office and laundry unit at the rear of the building.
At the time of purchase, Ashburton Apartments was home to several families that had resided there for more than a decade. Many of those families remain residents to this day. This $2MM project was completed in 2014 and once again provides safe, decent housing in the Forest Park neighborhood of Northwest Baltimore.
