1115 Whitelock Street is located in the Reservoir Hill neighborhood of Baltimore City. Surrounding neighborhoods include Penn North, Bolton Hill and Druid Heights. The neighborhood is immediately south of Druid Hill Park, which has recently been the center of a $290 million redevelopment.

Such investment is believed to spark economic development in the community as well. Reservoir Hill is home to local coffee shops such as Dovecote, close to popular restaurants such as Clavel and JBGBs and proximate to many of Baltimore’s cultural hubs. Within the neighborhood are several small community parks, playgrounds, basketball courts and community gardens. Commuters have convenient access to major thoroughfares, including I-83 for north/south travel and North Avenue for east/west travel. Major employers in the area include MICA, Johns Hopkins University and Coppin State University.
