Top Stories: Housing and Care Facility Planned for Young Adult Cancer Patients in East Baltimore, Clayworks Plans to Sell At Least One of its Buildings, Developer Backs Out of Cross Street Market Deal

Our most widely read story this week was Ed Gunts’ Monday real estate column, which led with the Ulman Cancer Fund’s plans to connect six East Baltimore row houses and turn them into lodging for young adult cancer patients. At present, crews are renovating the six vacant homes in the 2100 block of E. Madison Street in the EBDI Area. If all goes well with construction, by fall 2017 they’ll become the The UCF House, described as a “home away from home” for cancer patients ages 15 to 39. The planned facility will contain eight family suites, communal and dining spaces, a fitness area, a relaxation space, a library, a backyard and a roof deck.
