Plans Revealed for 6-Story, 267-Unit Apartment Building at 1800 South Hanover

Wood Partners is hoping its new building will help calm down a very “vehicular-centric” S. Hanover St., which is also known as Route 2, a highway that continues south through Annapolis.

Hanover St., and the western edge of the property up against train tracks, with lush plantings.
