New 700,000 SF Spec Distribution Center in Harford
Ryan Commercial LLC and Emory Properties LLC broke ground last week on a 700,000 sf speculative distribution center in Perryman to be known as the Mid-Atlantic Distribution Center. The site is adjacent to Bob’s Discount Furniture Distribution Center. With close proximity to the Baltimore-Washington I-95 corridor and Aberdeen Proving Ground, the site offers convenience to markets in the northeast, mid-Atlantic and south. The project is scheduled to be completed in January 2012.

Harford Community College will be hosting a networking event – The 3/50 Project, Building Business From The Ground Up – featuring founder Cinda Baxter on Wednesday, August 24, 2011 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. The 3/50 Project started with a single blog post urging consumers to pick three local businesses and spend $50 a month to boost the local economy. Through social media, the project became a national success. Harford County Tourism featured the 3/50 Project in a Where’s Wini video that aired during the December 2010 Holiday season and showcased Downtown Bel Air businesses. Click to view video.
