“The structures to be razed are in such deplorable condition that both Second Chance and Details, the salvage operations, found nothing to claim. But in this desolate spot will rise a structure offering hope of a new life to others. …  The complex will be built for formerly homeless 18- to 24-year-olds, and it will be known as Restoration Gardens 2.” —Pen Lucy’s ‘Haunted House’ Gives Way to Create Hope for Young Homeless, Baltimore Sun
