RETAILGROWTH

RETAIL DEVELOPMENT

Downtown Baltimore generated approximately $1.119 billion in retail in 2018.

Downtown Baltimore is thriving with development projects. Businesses are adding employees and developers are working hard to add new units to meet the high residential demand for Downtown living. And retailers are taking notice – brands like Bonobos Guideshop, The Red Boat, Blackwall Hitch, Warby Park, 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 42,913 residents, 119,690 employees, and over 26 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
