Maryland is a diverse, vibrant state that can, in many ways, be said to represent much of the geographic, demographic and commercial aspects of the U.S. as a whole. Located in the United States, within the famed North Eastern Corridor that stretches from Boston to Washington, DC, lays the state of Maryland. Since its founding, the state has leveraged its location, beautiful geography, citizens and infrastructure to become a force for residents and investors alike.
Located just north of Washington, DC, and bordered by the states of Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, Maryland entered the Union in 1788 as the 7th state admitted. Maryland currently has a population of almost 5.8 million people, populating a land mass of 9,844 square miles, with 7,719 miles of shoreline (4,600 along the world-famous Chesapeake Bay). Maryland’s diverse geography also includes mountainous rural areas (highest point 3,360 feet) and beautiful beaches and resorts along the Atlantic Ocean.
Anchored by its largest city, Baltimore (population of approximately 620 thousand individuals), as well as the technology- and services- focused Howard and Montgomery counties, Maryland also enjoys the job and investment opportunities afforded by its proximity to Washington DC.
Maryland enjoys special notoriety for its industry concentrations in aerospace and defense, education and research, health and life sciences, financial and professional services and information and technology.
It’s diverse and strong business and tax base have led to the following key accomplishments:
- Top five states in the USA for economic growth, job creation and innovation (US Camber)

Highlandtown - Baltimore
This is where our office is located and is a thriving melting pot of various nationalities. The area currently known as Highlandtown was established in 1866, with the first settlers of the community being primarily German Americans. In 1870, residents renamed the neighborhood “Highland Town” because of the views it offered over the city. The neighborhood was made part of Baltimore City in 1919.
The neighborhood today is bounded by Haven Street to the east, Baltimore Street to the north, Linwood Avenue to the west, and Eastern Avenue to the south. The long stretch of Eastern Avenue that runs through the neighborhood is notable as the Highlandtown’s main commercial thoroughfare. The area was designated as a “Main Street District” by a previous mayor Martin O’Malley, seeking to promote commercial revitalization through economic incentives from the National Main Street Program.
Highlandtown is one of Baltimore’s traditional blue-collar neighborhoods, and for this reason was designated as part of the Patterson Park/Highlandtown Historic District in the National Register of Historic Places. Former United States Senator Barbara Mikulski grew up in Highlandtown. (Source: Wikipedia)
Located in nearby Howard County, Ellicott City’s historic downtown – the Ellicott City Historic District – lies in the valleys of the Tiber and Patapsco rivers. The historic district includes the Ellicott City Station, which is the oldest surviving train station in the United States, having been built in 1830 as the first terminus of the original B&O Railroad line. The historic district is often called “Historic Ellicott City” or “Old Ellicott City” to distinguish it from the surrounding suburbs that extend south to Columbia and west to West Friendship.
Ellicott City has been home to a large Korean population along its Route 40 corridor, where numerous Korean-owned businesses and restaurants operate. Around 12,000 Korean-Americans currently live in Howard County, officials say. In Ellicott City, they make up 24 percent of the population. In 2017, Governor Larry Hogan dedicated a section of Route 40 from Rogers Avenue to Greenway Drive as “Korean Way”, paying homage to the community’s Korean culture. Ellicott City’s Koreatown has been widely recognized for revitalizing declining shopping centers along the U.S. highway.
The city also benefits from its close proximity to Baltimore and Washington, DC, which provides ample employment, educational and entertainment opportunities to supplement the vibrant cultural and business opportunities available in Howard County. (Source: Wikipedia)
