ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. – To improve the quality of life for APG residents, Corvias Military Living will renovate 34 townhomes on APG North (Aberdeen) by the end of the year.

Renovations are set for buildings in the Bayside community. Once completed, the rental townhomes will be available to active military of all ranks, military retirees, government civilians and Department of Defense contractors, with priority given to incoming service members.

Upgrades include new heating, ventilation and air conditioning, or HVAC, systems; new carpeting on the second floors and plank wood flooring on the first floors; and vinyl flooring in the kitchen and the bathrooms. Kitchen upgrades include new major appliances, granite countertops, light fixtures and cabinets. All renovated townhomes include a spacious, one-car garage.

“We are giving it [the neighborhood] a really nice facelift, bringing it back to life,” said Corvias Military Living Community Manager Allison Fenwick.

“These homes offer abundant storage — there is additional storage in the garage area, and large closets throughout the home,” she said.

The townhomes, which were originally built in the 1980s, range from 1, 625 square-foot, three-bedroom homes to 1, 700 square-foot four-bedroom homes.

According to Fenwick, all homes in the neighborhood that are not duplexes will be torn down. The final product, she said, will be more green, or open spaces between the homes.

“I think the residents will see the benefit of more open spaces and the lush landscaping with established trees,” she said.

She added that benefits to living on post, include a short commute, 24-hour emergency maintenance services, free snow removal and lawn mowing services, and free access to the Bayside Community Center which features a fitness center, a game room, and a multipurpose room with a full kitchen, a swimming pool and a playground.

“Maintaining a high quality of life for our service members and their families always has been, and always will be, Corvias’ number one priority,” she said.

According to Angela Marcum, Corvias regional public affairs manager, Corvias Military Living will host an open house at APG Sept. 17-18, at one of the newly renovated homes at 2932 B Bay Court. Attendees will have an opportunity to see firsthand a newly renovated home and be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card.

“We look forward to showing the community all that we have to offer, and why living on post is a great value and a great place to be,” she said.
