Obery Court/College Creek Housing

The replacement of the distressed Obery Court public housing project was the first
step in revitalizing this historic neighborhood in Annapolis. This once-thriving
community has been cut off from the rest of the city by large commercial
developments along West Street to the south. Plans were developed for new housing
through numerous meetings and workshops with the residents and neighbors. Phase
1 included 50 units of varying sizes and a small community building, including
classrooms for Head Start. Some of the houses overlook College Creek and a small
park with a tot lot. The buildings are arranged to maintain the existing streetscape and
the design reflects the historic heritage of Annapolis. Phase 1 was completed in 2010.
Phases 2 and 3 replace the College Creek Terrace housing designed in the late
1940’s and provide 124 units. The original plan grouped the buildings along a central
boulevard and, while the buildings could not be saved, the boulevard will be
preserved. The design of the buildings creates a streetscape that is inspired by
historic Annapolis and draws heavily on the common details, particularly the porches,
that are found throughout the city. The design was warmly commended by the City
Planning Commission. Phase 2 was completed in 2012. All phases have been
designed to meet the Green Communities Criteria.
