UrbanBuilt Partners With GEDCO Homes


This year we received the chance to partner with GEDCO Homes, an organization that serves families and individuals who have low to moderate incomes, and who are qualified home-buyers.  We worked hand in hand with GEDCO Homes to complete full-gut residential renovations in Baltimore County; specifically in Better Waverly, Coldstream-Homestead-Montebello, Ednor Gardens-Lakeside, and Waverly neighborhoods.  This program seeks to strengthen those neighborhoods by developing safe and affordable housing.

Pictured above are the 3 full-gut renovations that we recently completed for GEDCO Homes, which are located in the Waverly neigboorhood.
