Our REALTORS® enjoy introducing clients to Baltimore homes for sale for so many reasons. Of course, helping people reach their dream of homeownership is rewarding on its own, but there's even more to it: We sincerely believe Baltimore is a special place for anyone to live.
This city of about 620,000 anchors a metro area of 2.7 million as its economic and cultural center. It's long been known as "The Greatest City in America," and for good reason. With a fascinating past and a vibrant present full of creative energy, it is simply irresistible.
Baltimoreans are always looking for new ways to improve and enjoy their city. One of the most compelling outcomes of this was the founding of the state's first "Arts and Entertainment District," Station North, back in 2002.
At the time, the idea of an "Arts and Entertainment District" was new and had been tried by only a handful of cities across the United States. Now, Station North is one of the hottest places to live, work, and visit in the entire region.
Station North had humble beginnings. In the years prior to being recognized by the city, it was in economic decline and had many condemned or abandoned buildings. However, there was always a spark of promise that simply couldn't be overlooked.
The outstanding location of Station North was one reason for the renewed interest: It stands within walking distance of Penn Station and a full range of public transit options – even Amtrak, which makes it perfect for those commuting into the nation's capital.
Plus, housing in Station North has remained beautiful throughout its changing fortunes. Most of the housing stock is made up of historic early 20th century terraced houses, iconic in the area.
Since 2002, crumbling warehouses have been redeveloped into loft-style housing and cultural institutions like museums and theaters have moved into the district en masse. It is also known as a hub of the startup scene for Baltimore and the surrounding area.
Station North includes the neighborhoods of Charles North, Greenmount West, and Barclay, so studios, homes, and retail spaces are often in good supply. The Maryland Institute College of Art, University of Baltimore, and even Johns Hopkins University are just a short distance away.
Station North Arts and Entertainment District is one of the most exciting parts of a thriving city you're sure to love.
