Our new Baltimore home is ideal for essential workers and families


It’s never been more clear: the United States is in dire need of attainable, comfortable housing for middle-income and essential workers. Noah, part of the Common family of brands, is dedicated to providing high-quality, attainable workforce housing to renters across the country. That’s why we’re proud to be partnering with Ark Communities at our first-ever Baltimore home, Yorkewood. 

Through technology and people-first property management, Yorkewood will offer over 286 units of housing to the greater Baltimore area. Keep reading to discover why else we’re excited about our new flagship home.

The ideal location for work…

Yorkewood is located in Glen Oaks, Baltimore, just a 20 minute drive from Downtown. For essential workers like nurses and teachers, Yorkewood is an ideal home. Good Samaritan hospital is a 5 minute drive away, and many of the area’s public schools, including Leith Walk Elementary/Middle School, Mercy High School, and Northwood Elementary School are also nearby. 

However, residents won’t have to go far from home for recreation, work, errands, and exploration. 

…and play!

Across the street from Yorkewood, residents can enjoy the playgrounds, sports fields, and hiking trails of Chinquapin Run Park – a 76 acre stretch of greenspace that’s ideal for playdates, picnics, dog walking, or just getting out in nature. 

Outside of work and days spent at the park, there’s plenty to do on the evenings and weekends. Nearby York Road is home to Belvedere Square, a neighborhood market with food, boutiques, and occasional live music. Members of the community rave about its wide selection of cuisines and family friendly atmosphere. On the same road, you’ll also find The Senator Theatre, Clark Burger, Full Tilt Brewing, and additional everyday essentials like Staples and a veterinarian. 

Yorkewood is conveniently located within a 10 minute drive of several grocery stores, including a Giant only 5 minutes away. 

Convenient and family friendly amenities

Alongside spacious 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments, Yorkewood offers residents amenities that make life easier and more enjoyable. Families at Yorkewood can find time to connect at the community’s private playground, which features ample space for play, discovery, and meeting neighbors and other families. 

Residents also enjoy conveniences including on-site laundry and ample parking.

Attainably priced units

Yorkewood will meet the increased demand for high quality attainable and middle-income housing in the greater Baltimore area. Over the past year, rents in Baltimore have increased by 3.2% and are only expected to rise as the economy bounces back from the effects of 2020’s lockdowns.

Through technology, design, and thoughtful services, Yorkewood will provide residents with attainable housing, and focus on serving residents who earn 80% or below of AMI. Rent and income restricted units are available. 

Partnership with Ark Communities

The team at Noah is thrilled to be partnering with Ark Communities at Yorkewood. Ark Communities is an organization that puts residents first through acquiring, renovating, and operating large-scale rental communities with reliable and innovative programming. 

Ark Communities partners with local businesses, municipalities and community leaders to provide residents with thoughtful solutions, including continued education, financial security, career services, and other benefits. Their mission to impact the rental experience for families, children, and essential workers is directly in line with Noah’s goal of creating a better workforce housing experience.
