The Highfield House Condominium was designed by world renowned architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The building was constructed in the early 1960’s, and completed as an apartment building in 1964. Conversion to condominiums took place in 1979. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007. The building has been referred to as a modernist masterpiece, and has been written about numerous times in both architecture and print publications, including by well-known Baltimore journalist Jacques Kelly in his 2014 article celebrating the building’s 50th anniversary. The resurgence in interest in mid-century modern architecture and design has positioned the building well in the current marketplace.
The building comprises a 15 story elevator building containing 155 units. Features include a well appointed lobby, on-site parking (fee based), pool, fitness center, party room and security.
