Baltimore real estate firm Cross Street Partners on Thursday said it is expanding its construction division with work on three residential projects across the city.
The projects, which are underway, represent about $3.4 million in contracts and include 19 houses, the firm said. They are the first residential construction projects undertaken by Cross Street, which is known for its work on adaptive reuse of commercial buildings.
The firm also hired developer/builder Larry Rosenberg, whose work includes Roland Green at The Village of Cross Keys, as a project executive for the division.
"Residential construction is a natural outgrowth of our current work in Baltimore's innovation and historic districts," said Steve Hulse, a principal at Cross Street. "Our mission is to create value-oriented housing that meets the needs of residents of all ages, incomes, and abilities."
The three projects announced Thursday are Gwynn Oak Avenue Homes in Lake Ashburton, Huron Street Townhomes in Cherry Hill and The Townes at Hoen. Other partners on the projects include Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake, City Life Builders and the Baltimore City Housing Authority.
