Nestled between Baltimore and D.C. sits Columbia, a small community in Maryland with big plans for the future. A revitalization project has taken shape in the downtown area, creating a place where residents and visitors can live, work and play. The Downtown Columbia Partnership calls it “citysmart,” where you can find something new around every corner and the next thing to come beside it. So much has already happened, and even more things are on the horizon.
What’s Going On in Columbia?
Happening right now in Columbia is Peter Pan, one of Broadway’s timeless classics. It takes place at Toby’s Dinner Theatre on Symphony Woods Road from March 26 to June 12. For those who love nature and the city, you can enjoy both at the Little Patuxent River south of Lake Kittamaqundi. While you’re there, stop by the new Heaven at Haven on the Lake, a wellness retreat with healing relaxation pools, hot tubs, fresh foods and studios offering yoga, Pilates and more.
If you’d like to move closer to all the downtown action, the Metropolitan Downtown Columbia is a new six-story residence near The Mall. It features more than 380 units where you can choose a loft or a one-, two- or three-bedroom apartment home. The Metropolitan also has media and game rooms, an outdoor screening room, a pool with cabanas and an all-season kitchen.
What’s Coming to Columbia?
Columbia has big projects lined up, such as creating a city within a garden at the Merriweather District. Howard Community College will receive a new science, engineering and technology building in 2017, and a multiuse pathway connecting the hospital to Blandair will open in 2016. For music lovers with a curious pallet, the annual Wine in the Woods festival comes to Columbia on May 21 and 22.
