People living in certain Baltimore neighborhoods–say, Canton, Locust Point, or Woodberry–might have noticed their rents going up a lot. A whole lot. Like a more than 100 percent increase since 2000.

Last week, in Owings Mills they cut the ribbon to celebrate the completion of a new road that connects Metro Centre at Owings Mills to Owings Mills Mall, the Owings Mills Town Center and the larger northwest Baltimore County community. Sure, it’s just one road, but this simple connection will bridge all of our favorite Owings Mills destinations, while doing away with so much congestion that can be frustrating to deal with when you’re out for a fun day of shopping, or on your way to a movie. Of course, it also makes the new residential side of Metro Centre all the more appealing too– not that it really needed it. The folks in charge of development have been working long and hard on what they call, “creating a sense of place” in Owings Mills. And that is exactly what they’ve done.
There’s just something about a great view. Whether it’s the city skyline or the sun shimmering over the harbor, it feels good to start and close the day gazing at something gorgeous. At 2 East Wells, a newly constructed apartment building in South Baltimore, near Federal Hill, residents never have to go far to find the picturesque. From the multiple rooftop decks to the apartments themselves, the building offers some of the best views the city has to offer.
