Tuesday morning, a ceremonial groundbreaking celebrated a new apartment community that will transform the site of the former Trader Joe's and Barnes and Nobles stores on Joppa Road near the traffic circle in downtown Towson.

The new community, called Circle East, will have 371 apartments and both local and national shops, restaurants and entertainment. 

“With Circle East starting construction, downtown Towson continues its dynamic growth as a vibrant place to live, work and enjoy life. We’ve seen more than $1 billion in recent private investment in downtown Towson, adding jobs and economic vitality to the Baltimore County seat,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz.

The $1 billion in new private development includes over 3,400 new downtown apartments and townhomes which has transformed Towson into a 24/7 community.
