From Press Release:


For Residents of 101 Ellwood Modern Apartments & Lofts in Canton, “back to school” can’t come quick enough! On November 1st, the first residents of 101 Ellwood will move into their new luxury apartment and loft homes in what was formerly Patterson Park High School. The building has been reborn into a community of 140 luxury homes steps away from 138-acre Patterson Park and walking distance to Canton Square.

If the location was not incentive enough, the community boasts a list of amenities that are as unique as the building itself including: a zen courtyard, rooftop deck, fitness center with yoga room, and dog washing station. Many would argue the most attractive amenity is the attached parking garage with 146 spaces.

Original details were retained from the building’s history. There are hand-painted murals from the school’s library, classic wall-sized chalkboards, and solid oak book cases accenting various apartment homes. In contrast to, but surprisingly in harmony with, the historical elements, upgraded finishes were chosen to please today’s discerning lifestyle renter including: wall-size windows, high ceilings, hardwood floors, ceramic tile, granite counters, solid wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and full-size washers/dryers in every apartment and loft home.

With a prime location and spectacular amenities you might expect lofty rents, but instead they are a surprising value. Rents begin at $1,200 for a 600-square-foot studio unit and go up to $2,300 for a 1,450-square-foot twobedroom, two-story unit with a loft, a den and two bathrooms. Shaffin Jetha, principal for the developer, Focus Development LLC, said, “I think we’re the right product for the marketplace. There is nothing in our price point that is anywhere close to our quality.”

If the property’s pre-leasing activity is any indication of its future popularity, 101 Ellwood is likely to be downtown Baltimore’s hottest new address. The leasing pace has been brisk and interest in this unique community remains high.
