Award illustrates Frederick facility's rejuvenation

May 9—After more than 50 years, the Catoctin View Homes housing complex in Frederick has been reborn in award-winning fashion.

Kevin Lollar, executive director of the Housing Authority of the City of Frederick, led the way through the building's bright, airy lobby Tuesday, pointing out various amenities including the gas fireplace, the library, and the exercise and yoga room.

Upstairs in one of the units, Lollar opens the blinds to reveal windows that live up to the building's name, with views of the Catoctin Mountains and other local landmarks, including at least one of the city's famed clustered spires.
