It’s hard to miss the black and gold Towson University logo at the top of the gleaming new Towson City Center — you can see it heading north on York Road from the main campus, or heading into downtown Towson from York or Dulaney Valley Roads.
So what earned Maryland’s largest producer of teachers this lofty spot? Square feet. Towson University is leasing 60,000 square feet of space for its Institute for Well-Being and WTMD Radio studios.
The Institute for Well-Being is a wonderful addition to downtown Towson, delivering services to make us healthier as individuals and as a community. Four health centers provide a fresh, state-of-the-art learning environment for students in the College of Health Professions and quality care for their clients: The Center for Adults with Autism, the Speech, Language, and Hearing Center, Wellness Center, and Occupational Therapy Center. Free Wellness Wednesday programs on a range of health topics will be open to the public.
Each year, the Institute for Well-Being alone will bring over 2,300 clients, students, health care professionals and faculty to downtown Towson. Towson City Center is now 100% leased, with tenants including MileOne and Remedi Senior Care corporate headquarters, BusinessSuites, and WMS Partners. That means more breakfasts, lunches and dinners served at restaurants, more customers for downtown shops, and more opportunities for businesses to grow in downtown Towson.
Here’s to the black and gold!
