Baltimore in Forbes Top Ten Cities for Growth

Hey Baltimore! Ready for some good news?

Things are not so bad here as they are in New York City and other large metropolitan areas .  Forbes has ranked Baltimore in the top ten cities for job growth.  We’re number 7, behind Madison WI, Washington DC, Boston Ma, Richmond Va, Milwaukee WI,  and Pittsburgh PA.  Our unemployment is 5.1 % – and Forbes says that even though it jumped in the past year from 3.6%, we are still experiencing growth in education and professional and business services due to our proximity to Washington DC.

So while we are all fussing about the lack of growth on the top of the 4 Seasons, it is some relief to know that our job sector is still growing, not shrinking as it is in some cities.  That plus a condo market throughout the city that was not as overdeveloped as elsewhere means that we will ride this recession through, and Baltimore is still a classy place to live.

Projects like the Takoma Overlook are the true herald of recovery in this economy.  This renovation by Tenacity Group of an existing 1960s landmark building inside the Beltway in Montgomery County ties in very well to the strengths mentioned in the Forbes report.  Takoma Park is very close to Washington DC, and the Baltimore condo residences are spacious and affordably priced from $100,000 to $300,000.

The Takoma Overlook features a fully-equipped fitness center, a private outdoor pool, locker room & expansive sundeck , and  private balconies or patios available.  With an elegant lobby, landscaped grounds with grilling and sitting areas, a children’s park and pet services, it offers many amenities that are available in luxury buildings for much less.
