Hearing-impaired seniors getting a housing complex


Wyndholme Village, the nation's first privately funded elderly housing complex dedicated to the needs of the deaf and hard of hearing, will break ground Tuesday.

The village, on a 34-acre site off Frederick Avenue in Southwest Baltimore, is being developed by Lancelotta & Associates and when completed will represent a $150 million capital investment.

The community will feature 928 condominiums as well as a 90-room hotel, conference center and retail establishments. The development will be built in seven phases, with the first phase consisting of two six-story buildings, housing 54 condominiums each.

Base prices range from $105,573 for a one-bedroom unit to $217,000 for two-bedroom units. There will also be assisted living and skilled care units available.

Approximately 25 employees -- most of whom will be deaf or hard of hearing -- will be hired to work in the village once the first phase is completed.

The first condominiums are expected to be ready by early next summer.

An information center is open at 5205 Frederick Ave.
