COLUMBIA, Md. — Howard County held a ground-breaking ceremony Wednesday, for a big development project.

The nation's largest "Busboys and Poets" is being built in the Merriweather District of Downtown Columbia.

The space will be more than 10 thousand square feet and plans to house a restaurant, book store and event space.

The business is D.C. based and this will be the first location in the Baltimore area.

"Busboys and poets is a gathering space. it's for people who don't necessarily intersect. it's a place for everybody." said Busboys and Poets founder Andy Shallal.

The grand opening of the Merriweather district is scheduled for next year.
