Federal Hill Demographics: Read All About It!

The new demographic study commissioned by Federal Hill Main Street in January is now available and posted on our Web site. The final report is in two parts, the main report and the appendices.

The study’s authors (local resident Maggie Cawley on behalf of Go Global GIS. LLC) report on the growth, changes, and opportunities in South Baltimore compared with 2000. Since that time, Federal Hill’s population has grown significantly as more college-educated professionals moved to the area. In addition to college graduates, the data also show that the area has drawn young families and “empty-nesters.”

The study also includes information on “retail opportunities” for new businesses and the gaps that exist in the area. The data show a myriad of opportunities for retailers in Federal Hill, including specialty food, home, and sports-related products.

Federal Hill Main Street’s Business Development Committee will use the report as a resource to attract new businesses and expand the appeal of the district by meeting broader consumer demands.

If you would like to get involved or join the volunteer committee, please contact Jane Seebold, Executive Director by emailing
