Picture of prominent businesses in the Towson business community.

The Towson business community (PDF opens in new window) , one of the largest unincorporated county seats in the U.S., is a vibrant commercial and residential community that more than 55,000 residents and 2,600 businesses call home.

Conveniently located just inside the Baltimore Beltway about eight miles north of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, Towson is a major employment center, drawing more than 56,000 workers each day from nearby neighborhoods and throughout the region. While major educational and health care institutions are the largest local employers, Towson is also a hub for corporate headquarters, professional services and IT firms such as the health solutions unit of General Dynamics.
