The Office of Planning and Development is responsible for the redevelopment of its public housing stock through the use of the mixed-finance public development method. The goal, using a combination of public and private financing and partnerships, is to develop public housing that is integrated physically, socially, and economically with the greater community, thus improving job availability, community services, and citizen self-sufficiency. P&D strives to achieve its goals by operating as a private real estate company. 

Mission

  • Collaborate with the City of Baltimore to facilitate neighborhood revitalization
  • In the near-term and mid-term, procure qualified real estate developers with the capacity to deliver on long term projects
  • Develop the Baltimore Affordable Housing Development (BAHD) capacity as a developer in order that BAHD can self-develop HABC properties in the long-term
  • Support real estate developers in efforts to finance projects
  • Coordinate various federal, state and city agencies to meet deadlines
  • Provide construction oversight to reduce rework, cost and delay while approving necessary change orders
  • Ensure compliance with all regulations applicable to our funding sources

 Vision

  • To create diverse and vibrant communities through redevelopment and/or rehabilitation of public housing
  • To become a self-sustaining developer of HABC property through BAHD
  • Implement HABC’s “Community” and “Collaboration” goals within each project plan.

Real Estate Development

Planning and Development identifies public housing developments in need of redevelopment. Through use of federally subsidized HOPE VI funds, Replacement Housing Factor Funds, or the Capital Fund Program, P&D has been able to redevelop six (6) Baltimore City public housing developments.
