Downtown Baltimore neighborhoods are one of the largest economic engines in the city. While they account for just one percent of the Baltimore’s geography, they generate more than $122 million in property taxes and 85% of hotel taxes, 75% of the parking taxes, and 16% of all income taxes collected by the City. To keep this engine humming, we provide research-driven initiatives that foster development and track Downtown’s economic progress.
