2022 Event Recap

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the 2022 State of Downtown Baltimore (SODT) networking breakfast, presented by Gallagher Evelius and Jones. Our first, in-person SODT in over two years! After attending, we hope you’re feeling as excited as we are for the future of Downtown Baltimore. The recent announcement of historic state investment in Baltimore’s Central Business District and Inner Harbor neighborhoods will act as a catalyst for expanded growth and opportunity in our city. And current/pending development projects like Harborplace, Rash Field (phase 2), Lexington Market, the Baltimore Arena, The Compass, and more, already have us reimagining a revitalized Downtown. It’s safe to say that the momentum for Downtown’s success is stronger than it has been in a long time.
