Evergreen Senior Apartments
Evergreen at Renaissance Square is a community of 81 quality, affordable apartments for seniors located in eastern Baltimore County.
The senior housing is part of a mixed-income, mixed-tenure development within an older urban community that affords access to public infrastructure, recreation, mass transit, education, shopping and community activities. It is a prime example of “infill” development where senior living is integrated with new homes in a compact and walkable existing community.
Evergreen is a three-story building that consists of 56 one-bedroom and 25 two-bedroom apartments. All of the apartments serve seniors who are over the age of 62 and have incomes at or below 60 percent of the area median. The apartments range in size from 666 to 1,066 square feet. Each apartment comes with a fully-equipped kitchen including a microwave and dishwasher. On-site amenities for residents include a large community gathering space with adjacent kitchen facilities, computer room, game room with billiards table, crafts room, exercise studio, storage lockers, and a hospitality suite that is available to overnight guests.
The community’s design incorporates numerous green features including Green Label carpet, use of low-VOC paints, energy-efficient heating and air conditioning systems, extra insulation, and Energy Star lighting fixtures and appliances. Landscaping consists of heat- and drought-resistant native plants.
