W. Baltimore is making some incredible changes this year! With more than $1 million in funding for W. Baltimore building facade improvements, the multi-million dollar renovation of the Lord Baltimore Theatre, and the line of developers jumping on the market to build new student housing apartments, W. Baltimore is the next big area of focus for real estate development.
The Southwest Partnership(SWP) is looking to hire a highly motivated person who is looking to head managing this development movement. Not only will the awardee have a huge opportunity to build up their REED network in Baltimore, but they will be able to help the local community's economy and see the city make incredible progress through real estate development.
The position involves meeting with the local community members to create a brand for the W. Baltimore street corridor. This is every Economic Developer's Dream! Be a part of the movement to extend the downtown commercial corridor on W. Baltimore St.
Not to mention, the SWP has the coolest group of young professionals that I've had the pleasure of working with.
