In the 1800s, Baltimore’s Mount Vernon neighborhood was at the center of the city’s rise to prominence – becoming the premiere destination for culture, arts and architecture. As new life is breathed into neighborhoods throughout the city, it is only natural for Mount Vernon to find itself at the center of this urban renaissance.
Somerset Development Company, with its partner NAGE Housing, is proud to be part of the evolution of Mount Vernon's eclectic mix of historic buildings and diverse architectural styles through the restoration of the historic Medical Arts Building (now known as the Professional Arts Building). Through the restoration and modernization of the property, located on a prominent corner at the intersection of Read & Cathedral Streets, the aesthetic and investment value of the entire neighborhood is increased, providing quality living space to an increasingly diverse population.
Artfully blending the old with the new, the Professional Arts Building is leasing and features 96 modern studios, one and two bedroom apartment; transforming this Historic Landmark into a central feature of Mount Vernon's world-renowned charm and character.
