New construction town homes and luxury single family dwellings with brick facades are now available as an alternative to the 1940's era homes. In addition to its close proximity to Baltimore's downtown business district, with easy access via I-695, Middle River is just minutes from the growing corporate and commercial hub of White Marsh.
Heavily developed in the 1930's and 1940's, Middle River and neighboring Essex experienced a population boom due to the success of the Glen L. Martin Company. With such an important place in Middle River's history, the aviation company now maintains state of the art museum within the town. Today known as Lockheed-Martin, the aerospace technology company continues to employ many Middle River and Essex residents, who enjoy an easy commute within their own neighborhood.
Due to the amazing potential and convenient location of the affordable water community, more and more people are looking to purchase a home in the increasingly gentrified town. Its location in the county gives Middle River residents access to one of the state's best school systems, which includes Eastern Tech public high school, a competitive and prestigious magnet program and Maryland State Blue Ribbon award winner. Middle River is a smart and attainable place for first time buyers to call home.
