The Severn, a historic high-rise apartment building that offers spacious apartment homes, is located just minutes away from everything. Dating back to 1894, The Severn is first high-rise apartment building in Baltimore and is still the tallest building overlooking Mt. Vernon Square. The Severn offers spacious 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom apartments with hardwood floors, large windows and tile baths. During the season you can unwind and relax at the rooftop pool above The Severn's sister community, 611 Park Avenue, merely two blocks away. The Severn has all you could ever want and more!

Love this apartment I currently reside in a three bedroom apartment in the Severn and love how spacious the apartment is. There are high ceilings, hardwood flooring, old fireplaces, and huge windows that bring in a ton of light. New management is very accommodating, with maintenance coming in right away when there is an issue. All of the appliances are new. The area is filled with restaurants within walking distance, and is a cute, historical neighborhood.

Quiet building, nice hardwood floors. I have lived in the Severn for two years, and have really enjoyed it. It's an old building, so the walls are thick so I cannot hear my neighbors talking, playing music, or even having a party (Could hear from hallway, but not my apartment!). The floors are beautiful as well, and nice tall ceilings. One downside is there's no AC, but the apartment generally stays pretty cool in the summer.

Old building, but great location and management. I have lived at The Severn for 18 months and it has been a great experience so far. The building itself is old, which has a both positives and negatives, but the management does an excellent job of answering requests for service and general issues. The Building itself was built in the 1890s, and so with that old-school charm (e.g., high ceilings and hardwood flooring) comes some problems common to all older buildings. As with any building of this age, there is no central air, so cooling in the summer (which is a necessity) must come from window/portable AC units. But, on the other hand, the heating system (individually controlled wall-panel style heaters) does a great job in the winter. Some of the other common issues that arise due to age also allow the strengths of the management company to really shine. There is the occasional pest, but if the apartment is kept clean then they are almost non-existent. I have seen a mouse on occasion and have found three dead roaches over the 18 month period. Those pests are unavoidable in a building of this age, but management responds to any requests quickly and they actively monitor and proactively deal with such issues by periodically sending extermination services throughout the building to set traps etc. so that any pests that might be present are dealt with. The location is excellent (5 minute walk to many restaurants, 20 minute walk to the inner harbour, 5 minute walk to a shuttle stop for Johns Hopkins). The neighbourhood is one of the safest in Baltimore and it is also close to a lot of cultural options (e.g., within 10 minute walk of the Meyerhoff Symphony hall, Peabody library, Enoch-Pratt library, and Walters Art museum). Lastly, the management company is responsive to maintenance requests and has really tried to foster a sense of community. They manage several other buildings in the neighbourhood and have holiday parties and events among all the buildings where they have food, drinks, and games! These are a great way to see other tenants and get to know other folk who are living in the apartments around you. I definitely recommend The Severn, or any other building managed by WPM.

Unresponsive, unprofessional, and uncommunicative management company. I have been waiting for three months for must-sign legal paperwork from them. Separately, it took me four months to receive and sign my lease renewal, which occurred two months AFTER my lease was supposed to begin (lived two months without legal paperwork/coverage). This wasn't for lack of trying. Don't bother trying to work with Tamika at 611 Park or The Severn...unless WPM is in a position to take your money. Never slow to cash a check!

Great Area but... This historic building is in the heart of Mount Vernon and next to the Washington monument park. Not bad rent for the area but there are some issues. The elevator tends to break down several times a year. Also there have been problems with mice, but it is the city. When you call for maintenance they are pretty quick responding. Management is helpful and polite.
