Hollins Station is a lease-purchase community in the Riverview area of Lansdowne in Baltimore County.
The community consists of 48 two- and three-story townhomes, each having three bedrooms and two and a half baths. Three of the homes are designed to be handicapped accessible. Hollins Station serves households earning between $18,500 and $54,500 annually. For the first 15 years, the development will serve as a rental community. Thereafter, residents will have the opportunity to purchase their homes. It is anticipated that the homes will be priced at fair market value and financing will be structured to ensure that monthly housing payments remain affordable. Habitat America will work with residents during the rental period to prepare them to become buyer-ready.
Historically, Lansdowne housed many of the workers on the B&O Railroad and became known as B&O Town. The area went through a development surge beginning in the 1940’s at the end of WWII. The GI bill allowed returning American soldiers to buy homes and many opted to live in Lansdowne near employment opportunities.
The Hollins Station townhouses fit comfortably into the surrounding community, providing much-needed homes in an area that has not seen new development in some time. The architectural design utilizes variation in rooflines, setbacks and color to create an attractive streetscape. Projected bays and gabled roofs add character to the facades. Durable materials such as brick, vinyl siding and trim also make the homes fairly low-maintenance.
Amenities at Hollins Station include a community building that offers an exercise room and space for resident gatherings and after-school activities. The community also includes a fenced tot lot, picnic area, and ample parking for residents and their guests.
