Business investment summit explore Towson to Sparksby Rick Cobert, Business Development Representative
Baltimore County Department of Economic Development

The Baltimore County Department of Economic Development launched the first in a series of investment summits with a lively exploration of new projects, upcoming developments, and opportunity sites in the Towson to I-83 business corridor. Partnering with Towson University and the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore, about 100 invited investors, commercial real estate professionals, developers and business leaders attended the summit. Here’s some of what they heard:

David Hillman, President and CEO, Southern Management Corporation
“By far Baltimore County is the most business friendly place I’ve experienced. The County has more potential and transportation access than other competitive areas.”

Thomas Baum, President, Bozzuto Homes
“I was impressed with the business-friendly environment. Our urban townhomes at Towson Green are drawing families and empty-nesters from the City.

Art Adler, Partner at Caves Valley Partners
“When you compare Towson to college towns such as Chapel Hill, North Carolina and Ann Arbor, Michigan, I believe Towson can capture the same vibrancy.”

Tom Murphy, Senior Fellow, Urban Land Institute and former Mayor of Pittsburgh
“In Pittsburgh, we took a vacant Nabisco building, transformed it into offices for Google. Our Principles of Success: Leadership, Strategy, and Design Excellence.” 

Baltimore County Economic Development Executive Director Dan Gundersen
“We can move forward with a common vision to show ourselves and our community that there is no end to what we can accomplish together in Baltimore County.”
