Greenleigh at Crossroads is the residential piece of the live/work/play Baltimore Crossroad development in Eastern Baltimore County. Originally planned as commercial, this site was reimagined as an ambitious residential community of 1,000 homes which elevated the housing standards for the area. Neo-traditional design, sophisticated architecture, and bold amenities all contribute to the transformative effect this community has had on Baltimore Crossroads and the entire surrounding community.
