Downtown Columbia is an economic hub for the region. Corporate headquarters and new businesses are attracted to the amenities for their employees—a critical mass of retail, restaurants, and entertainment–as well as the ideal location in the Baltimore-Washington corridor. Columbia also has access to some of the best schools in the country for their employees’ families.

Development of the Merriweather District, a multi-building employment center, is underway near Merriweather Post Pavilion and Symphony Woods Park. It will be a vibrant, walkable, mixed-use environment including shops, restaurants, apartments, structured parking and parkland in addition to an important employment center for the region.

Currently under construction in the Merriweather District is the third new office building that will contain the new corporate headquarters for Tenable, the world’s fastest growing cyber security company. Tenable will occupy seven floors in 150,000-square-feet of space in the 350,000-square-foot signature building. Completion is anticipated by the end of 2019.

Also in the Merriweather District is One Merriweather, a 220,000-square-foot building that opened as the home of MedStar Health’s new, expanded headquarters. MedStar Health is the largest integrated healthcare delivery system in Maryland. The building is located on the corner of Little Patuxent and Broken Land Parkways and includes a fitness center, an upscale restaurant, Cured and its adjacent speakeasy 18th & 21st, in addition to a 1,200-space parking garage. One Merriweather was the first new office building in Downtown Columbia in 15 years.

Two Merriweather, an approximately 125,000-square-foot office building adjacent to One Merriweather, contains the regional headquarters of Pearson Education, an online and blended education company. Additional street level retail and a boardwalk over an elaborately designed environmental area offer additional amenities and outdoor spaces for the tenants of both One and Two Merriweather.
