NOTE: The information contained herein has been obtained from sources deemed reliable and is believed to be accurate. However, no express or implied warranty is made or may be inferred from any such representation. Dimensions, square footage and acreage contained herein are more or less. Prospective purchasers are encouraged to perform their own due diligence, in advance of the auction, regarding the permitted uses of the property.

LOCATION:
400, 412 and 414 N. Luzerne Avenue are located within the McElderry Park neighborhood in east Baltimore. McElderry Park sits a short distance east of the Johns Hopkins Hospital East Baltimore campus, and a short distance north of Patterson Park. The neighborhood has been experiencing significant investment over the past two plus decades, spurred in part by significant development surrounding and expanding out from Johns Hopkins. The neighborhood is strategically located, with close proximity to Downtown, I-95, I-83 and a significant number of major employers. The community is comprised predominantly of the rowhomes for which Baltimore is known, with businesses, school buildings and religious facilities lining the neighborhood’s edges.

The church, located at 400 N. Luzerne Avenue, has been a community cornerstone since at least 1910. The existing building replaced a prior church, providing continued use for approximately 150 years. The facility has been known as the Second and Fourth Baptist Church, East Baltimore Baptist Church, Paradise Community Church and Captivate, all of which have served the spiritual needs of generations of Baltimoreans. The rowhomes included in the sale have further served that purpose, having been used as offices, meeting spaces, fellowship space and residences.

The auction provides an excellent opportunity to purchase a high-exposure site with a rich history and ample redevelopment potential. Unique architecture, proximity to some of the City’s largest institutions and an overall convenient location further enhance the asset’s potential. The three buildings share a rear patio, but are otherwise well situated for continued use as one facility or subdivision back to three separate uses.
