The Cove Point Community addresses the critical affordable housing shortage for seniors in Baltimore County, Md.
The multistory, new construction development provides 47 affordable, high quality apartment homes with superior tenant services specifically designed to enhance independent living for seniors. Long-time retirees who wish to remain in their communities, close to family, churches and health services, now have age-appropriate housing options formerly unavailable in the marketplace. The 12-acre property was located on an isolated stretch of land in a floodplain and bordered by train tracks and highways.
Enterprise Community Development transformed the challenging site, creating the area’s first new development in 20 years. Cove Point features handicapped-accessible wide entry foyers, walk-in closets, large double-hung windows, and full-size kitchens with low-level cabinets for easier reach. One unit is reserved for the resident property manager.
To further accommodate the needs of seniors, the community includes a computer room, library, and space for on-site medical visits. It also features a multi-purpose community room with a kitchen and space for resident meetings, eating together programs, craft making and music. The exercise room, entry lobby, lounge and laundry rooms provide space for casual interaction among neighbors. Exterior amenities include a sheltered front porch, a courtyard terrace and a well- landscaped walking path that circles the building perimeter for secure outdoor exercise. Supportive services are offered to enhance the residents’ quality of life and allow them to retain independence as they age in place.
