Hollander Ridge is an affordable housing project built in Baltimore City, Maryland. The area sits snuggly between Interstate-895, Interstate-95 and Pulaski Hwy. Located between Rosedale and the Pulaski Industrial Area of Maryland, the community of Hollander Ridge dates back to the 1970s. In 1976, a 1,000-unity high-rise building known as the Hollander Ridge Tower was established. The tower was a public housing development built by the Housing Authority of Baltimore City (HABC).
Through the years, crime at Hollander Ridge started to increase significantly. When a Secret Service team was dispatched to the area, they recorded Hollander Ridge as an open-air drug and sex market. To control crime rates in the area, a fenced perimeter was suggested. In 1998, HABC, with the help of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, built an 8-foot tall, spiked, wrought iron fence around the property of Hollander Ridge. This fence cost them $1.7 million and still stands today. In 2000, HABC went ahead and demolished the whole property in a controlled explosion. By this time, the Hollander Ridge community was made up of 100% African Americans.
On April 29, 2020, the NHP Foundation acquired the properties and began rehabilitation. Currently, Hollander Ridge is an affordable housing property made up of 94 scattered units of attached, semi-attached and detached single-family houses. The style of these homes ranges from one to four bedrooms and includes features like decks, patios and garages.
