Market Overview

Baltimore, or “The Charm City,” is an American success story and a bustling city built on old tradition and civic pride,. Since the redevelopment of the Inner Harbor in the late 1970s, Baltimore has set the standard for urban renewal and is now a major travel destination welcoming nearly 13 million business and leisure visitors each year. The crown jewel of Baltimore is the Inner Harbor, a scenic and popular waterfront area with dozens of retail stores, restaurants and attractions. Located in close proximity to Fort McHenry, the city is the birthplace of the Star Spangled Banner. This, combined with Baltimore’s easy accessibility, makes the city unique. Most of the city’s sights and neighborhoods are within walking distance of each other, and this makes Charm City an ideal place for business, as well as pleasure.

The Baltimore region has one of the nation’s top ten-rated hospitals, Johns Hopkins. Hopkins focuses on discovering new medical cures and innovation. Colleagues collaborate to explore prospective ideas. Johns Hopkins strives to procure promising results for the diagnosis and treatment of cancers, heart diseases and many more health-related issues.

Baltimore’s growth continues today. Development is moving both east and west of the Inner Harbor with more projects on the way. Baltimore is currently enjoying a second renaissance with more than $3 billion in new development planned.
