ReBUILD Metro is a non-profit organization that starts with community organizing and evidence-based development to catalyze inclusive, bottom-up and people-first revitalization.

ReBUILD Metro specializes in scattered-site, single-family rehabilitation, but we also participate in new-construction single-family and multi-family projects. Our work benefits low and moderate-income people and places by making innovative use of financing and subsidies to create quality rental housing and homeownership opportunities at affordable prices.

Our work blends market-based redevelopment and authentic community power-based organizing to achieve transformative regeneration in distressed neighborhoods. Our approach seeks to leverage long-term debt by rehabilitating distressed properties while supporting that investment through strengthening community equity, safety and stability. These two prongs create a mutually reinforcing virtuous cycle: strengthening this community secures housing investments, and a housing market is sustained with a strong and safe neighborhood around it.

To date, ReBUILD Metro has transformed nearly 200 scattered-site vacant buildings and lots into new housing units, with measurable effects on community revitalization. Our sustained investment in our East Baltimore target areas have achieved a sharply decreased vacancy rate, broadly increased median sales prices, lower crime rates and increased income diversity— all with no direct displacement of existing residents.

ReBUILD Metro also participates in more traditional affordable housing by partnering with experienced developers utilizing Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC). These partnerships have created 500 affordable housing units in six communities throughout New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland.

In total, ReBUILD Metro projects have invested more than $175 million in over 750 homes and apartments for low and moderate-income people and places.

ReBUILD Metro’s 1700 East Biddle project is the next phase in our 15 years of work to bring more high-quality and accessible homeownership opportunities to East Baltimore. Through this project, we are rehabilitating 9 abandoned properties and 7 vacant lots on the 1700 block of East Biddle Street into 13 new for-sale 3-bedroom homes. The homes will be less than a block from Eager Park and just three blocks from Johns Hopkins Hospital. All homes will qualify for down payment assistance through Johns Hopkins’ Live Near Your Work program and through Baltimore City’s Vacants to Value Booster Program.

For a sample of how these properties will appear once they are completed, you can review this 3D Tour of one of our most recent homeownership properties, which we completed one block from the 1700 East Biddle project in 2019.

The homes at 1727-1733 East Biddle Street will be available for pre-sale soon. To inquire about the 1700 East Biddle project or other available ReBUILD properties, contact Kim Barton with Kim Barton Group of Keller Williams Legacy at 443-418-6491 or at kim@kimbarton.net.
