The Mary Harvin Senior Center

Baltimore, Maryland

The Mary Harvin Senior Center includes 61 affordable apartments for seniors and a community center for job training. The facility also features dedicated spaces for counseling and social services. This 69,000-square-foot, four-story, wood-frame construction building with one bedroom and one bath units and on-site parking was designed to meet Federal Four Housing Standards with 10 percent designed to meet UFAS standards for the mobility impaired and 2 percent designed for the visual and hearing impaired. In one of the most desolate communities in Baltimore, the Mary Harvin Senior Center, named for one of the founding members of the Southern Baptist Church, was considered the catalyst for the develop­ment of the Baltimore East neighborhood.
