During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, retail businesses and restaurants took an incredible hit as the world shut down in order to slow the spread of the virus. But in recent months, as businesses started to open back up and consumers increased their comfort with in-person shopping and dining, retailers and restaurateurs started to get back to business as usual.
One area in particular that is seeing a post-COVID comeback is Baltimore’s Harbor East neighborhood. This iconic waterfront neighborhood, offering 5.5 million square feet of development, is anchored by some of Baltimore’s most wondrous skyscrapers occupied by some of the state’s biggest names in business. At the ground level, Harbor East’s beautiful buildings host an array of boutique and nationally-known shops, renowned restaurants, and other attractions. This spring, several new retail and restaurant tenants joined the action in Harbor East.
