AIA Baltimore Honors L on Liberty with Two Awards

November 2021 | Century

A very big congratulations to the design and construction teams for L on Liberty! This Baltimore project won not one, but two awards at this year’s AIA Baltimore Excellence in Design Awards! Coming in strong with a Design Excellence Award Honorable Mention and a Good Design = Good Business Honorable Mention, L on Liberty is a LEED Gold® 71-unit affordable housing building with a bright future.

Jury Comments – Design Award Honorable Mention

The jury really appreciated the urbanistic qualities that L on Liberty provides its community. It is a great example of subsidized housing that is representative of good design and has the amenities to support living in a city. The jury noted the abstraction of the rowhouse design and masonry detailing, while fitting into the historic fabric of the surrounding buildings.

Jury Comments – Good Design = Good Business Honorable Mention

The jury felt that L on Liberty is another great example of projects that need repeating throughout Baltimore. The subsidized housing takes advantage of the state program to transform a site that otherwise may have been difficult to develop. The building transforms that corner edge on Liberty and provides its tenants with great public amenities like being close to transportation, the public library and other cultural institutions.
