A Baltimore developer was given zoning approval Tuesday to build apartments on one of Hampden's last remaining vacant lots.
The Baltimore Board of Municipal and Zoning Appeals signed off on plans for 10 apartment units with 12 off-street parking spaces to be built on a triangular plot near the intersection of Roland Avenue, Hickory Avenue and West 34th Street.
The development wraps around the corner lot and each apartment unit is designed to look like a modern rowhouse.
According to the developer's renderings, four units will face Roland Avenue, six will look out onto Hickory Avenue and an entrance to the building will open onto the sidewalk off West 34th Street.
The market rate apartments are being built by Guerilla Architecture LLC, which bought the land at auction, according to Joseph Rabinowitz, Guerilla's principal.
Guerilla paid just under $200,000 for the lot last year, according to Baltimore land records.
