About Us

Three Walls Development, LLC (3WD) is a minority-owned, community development company established in 2022. Our three founding members met as participants in University of Baltimore’s Real Estate Fellows Program and soon learned they were all Baltimore City natives, had backgrounds in community service, and had personal and professional ties to East Baltimore. After assessing their individual strengths, Wesley Hawkins, Amber Jones, and Lamar Purnell decided to team up and pursue a unique development opportunity in Broadway East.

While 3WD is building its resumé as a company, our members have over ten years of combined experience in the areas of real estate development, construction, finance, business administration, organizational leadership, community engagement, workforce development and project management. Our first joint project involves two vacant home renovations, but collectively, we have completed 18 vacant home renovations in Baltimore City. As 3WD grows its business name and reputation on the principals that brought us together, we look forward to becoming your go-to development partner in restoring vacant blocks into vibrant, sustainable communities.
