RETAILGROWTH

RETAIL DEVELOPMENT

Downtown Baltimore generated approximately $1.242 billion in retail in 2017.

Downtown Baltimore is thriving with new development projects. Businesses are adding employees and apartment developers are working hard to add new units to meet the high residential demand for Downtown living. And retailers are taking notice –  brands like Warby Parker, Anthropologie, and The Four Seasons; markets like Whole Foods and Harris Teeter, as well as one-of-a-kind boutiques are part of Downtown’s growing retail mix. And with 42,626 residents, 119,312 employees, and over 25.9 million visitors each year, it’s no wonder.

Once you're here, Downtown Partnership can support you by monitoring legislation and market trends that could affect the area’s retail climate. If you have retail space to lease, email us at retail_vacancy@dpob.org
