The properties, known as the Renaissance Row Phase I development, are located on the 900 block of Bennett Place in the Harlem Park neighborhood in west Baltimore. Harlem Park is located along the US-40 corridor just west of Downtown Baltimore. The 900 block of Bennett Place sits immediately north of US-40, and is approximately three blocks west of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. The area is well known for its proximity to major employers, including the University of Maryland at Baltimore complex, as well as the Maryland State Center complex. The block sits just west of a newer residential development known as Heritage Crossing. The area offers easy commuter options, with I-83, I-395 and I-95 easily accessible via Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard and alternative routes.

The Renaissance Row Phase I development comprises 10 residential townhomes. The 4 and 5 bedroom townhomes have been fully gut renovated to include brand new HVAC, plumbing, electric, kitchen appliances and much more. Nine of the ten units are rented, with the tenth unit vacant and requiring some cosmetic work. Developer provided materials below offer an in-depth look at the project, as well as detailed property information. Please see below for information about obtaining a developer marketing package.

The auction presents an excellent opportunity to purchase between one and ten rental properties at your price at public auction (after the hard work has already been done). Please see below for an explanation as to how the properties will be offered.
