Boosting Baltimore One Building at a Time

Pangea Properties Strives to Stabilize Distressed Neighborhoods.

Chicago, IL, August 08, 2013 --( While the Baltimore housing market is continuing to show signs of strength, in many neighborhoods distressed multi-family properties are still a dime a dozen. According to Pangea Properties CEO Al Goldstein, the Baltimore housing market is in need of landlords who will properly manage and maintain buildings as a means to stabilize neighborhoods.

Pangea Properties, a private real estate investment trust (REIT) focuses on providing quality and value at an affordable price point and currently operates over 400 units in the Baltimore area. Goldstein explains that Baltimore’s multi-family housing market is comparable to the present status of Chicago’s market and that Pangea is looking to expand and bring their success in the Midwest to the East Coast.

“We own and operate buildings both in Chicago and Indianapolis, but Baltimore has become a prime opportunity to get involved on the East Coast,” says Goldstein. “The infrastructure and issues many neighborhoods are facing is similar to what we have been through in Chicago. Our goal is to renovate clusters of distressed buildings and revamp them into thriving communities.”
