It's Towson's Time

A Place to Live, Work, Play and Learn

Downtown Towson is booming with everything active professionals want—a place to walk, bike and explore, with shopping and entertainment just around the corner. 


Towson has become a major destination, with more than $1 billion in recent private investment. A 15-screen Cinemark theatre anchors a new boulevard of restaurants at Towson Square. The Towson City Center office tower is bustling with employees from MileOne Automotive and Remedi Senior Care headquarters, as well as Towson University Institute for Well-Being and WTMD Radio.

  • A Whole Foods Market 
  • 134,000 square feet of office space
  • 250 apartments
  • 905 student housing units
  • 100,000 square feet of retail
  • A 200-room extended stay hotel 

A Convenient Place to Work


Downtown Towson is a convenient place to work—Towson and Goucher professors biking to campus; Mile One employees stopping for a coffee at Cunningham’s before going to the office; General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) programmers exercising at L.A. Fitness at Towson Commons or visiting the Towson Town Center; Stanley Black & Decker Global Tools and Storage engineers walking to the Joppa Road corporate campus from new townhomes; and health care professionals just a short hop to GBMC, University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center or Sheppard Pratt.

Take your pick from a range of housing, whether its eco-friendly Towson Green townhomes, or luxury apartments with pools, spas, gyms with personal trainers and views of the growing Towson skyline. More than 3,000 apartments and townhomes have been recently built or are in development downtown. 

Diverse Business Climate

Towson’s diverse business climate attracts Fortune 500 companies and start-up entrepreneurs. The TU Incubator and Baltimore County Boost Fund are assisting early stage companies as they bring business ideas to market. New co-working spaces are attracting start-ups and innovators.

Smart public investment, revitalization of older commercial areas, and business assistance and loan programs are transforming the Baltimore County seat into a vibrant downtown.
