We’ve got many reasons to celebrate. Yes, we have a new website, but we’re focusing this post on our entire community. Columbia, Maryland was just ranked the second happiest city in the U.S. by WalletHub. So, if happiness is what you’re searching for in a city (which who isn’t?), then look no further than Columbia.
This is also a great time to say we just opened our new Lakeside Title headquarters in Columbia. Come see us at 9200 Old Annapolis Road. We’re already in love with our new space, and we hope you and your customers will feel the same way!
Back to Columbia as a whole. Our great city beat out 181 out of 182 U.S. cities based on three main dimensions: emotional and physical well-being, income and employment and community and environment. Howard County Executive, Calvin Ball, weighed in on what makes Columbia such a happy city and it’s heavily based on the Columbia Associations’ efforts to keep our community connected. How do they do that? Through the creation of community green spaces, focus on quality schools, encouragement of inclusivity and diversity and the support and growth of local businesses Not to mention, our city’s proximity to Baltimore and the capital, making for a thriving job market.
Is there room for even more happiness here in Columbia? The Howard Hughes Corporation hopes to find out with their $325 million renovation plans of Columbia’s Lakefront. The goal of this renovation is to continue improving the city and it will include the addition of a new medical building, housing options, retail offerings and optimization of the natural environment. The renovation will stay true to our founder, responsible for some of the most successful cities in the nation, James Rouse’s vision for Columbia to be a “city in a garden.”
Our Lakeside Title team got our start in Columbia and we feel pretty happy too! Happy to work with other hardworking professionals and to play a part in making Columbia and the rest of the DMV home to our clients and their clients.
Whatever your reason is for being happy in Columbia, all of us sure love our community and Lakeside Title is proud of our role in welcoming new residents and business opportunities here for over 25 years. Our city is happily thriving, and it’s because of all of you!
