Historic West Baltimore Mansion May Convert To Rentals

The Sellers Mansion in West Baltimore, a 7,200 sq. ft. building that is over 150 years old and located at 801 N. Arlington Avenue, may be converting to apartments if a local developer gets their wish. It is part of the National Register of Historic Places since 2001 due to it being the former home of the president of the North Central Railroad.

A conversion is planned for the mansion that includes a three story addition. Facts released so far show that the apartments will mainly be located in the addition, with the mansion acting as the main building entrance and offices for the rental management staff. The developer of the project is Ernst Valery Investment Corp.

It’s not the first time this mansion has been up for consideration. A prior owner purchased the mansion in 2010, but was unable to move forward with redevelopment. Ernst Valery Investment Corp purchased the mansion for just $10,000 last December. 

The mansion is dilapidated, has major water damage, structural issues with its facade and various other issues needing mitigation. Beyond these issues, it’s a 7,200 sq. ft. structure with historic charm and a great basis for a cool urban apartment project with a lot of character.  That was purchased for just $10,000 by a forward-looking developer.

Why are we talking so much about Baltimore?
