Baltimore Icons: Kirby Fowler

The Downtown Partnership of Baltimore is the mayonnaise on the beautiful Dagwood sandwich that is our city.  It brings together all of the ingredients; the businesses, the government, the infrastructure, and all of the other parts of a good lunch, including your neighbors.

Kirby Fowler, the president of the Downtown Partnership, is guy spreading the mayo, and he has worked tirelessly in Baltimore over the last two decades, bringing Station North to it’s state of prominence in the city’s art scene, and turning Downtown into more than just a destination.

Downtown is now a thriving residential area as well, with 97% occupancy in the numerous houses, condos and apartments downtown.  Their website tells you more about the Downtown Partnership’s programs, and so does the Baltimore Icons story below.
