Bounded on the west by Lawrence Street and on the north, east and south by the Patapsco River, Locust Point is a peninsular neighborhood that has remained largely untouched by the development sweeping through much of Baltimore. With two glaring exceptions: the chic Silo Point condominiums and the Class "A" Tide Point business campus.

Locust Point remains what it has been for generations: a close community of small, lawn-less brick rowhouses, where residents hang their laundry outside to dry, tend the odd backyard rosebush and congregate at whichever local pub has earned their fierce loyalty.

Historically a blue-collar neighborhood and a center of Baltimore's Polish-, Italian-, and Irish-American communities, Locust Point has long attracted commercial interests. It was home to a Coca-Cola syrup plant, a Procter & Gamble soap plant, and Indiana Grain silos, and still boasts a Domino Sugar refinery and the world headquarters of Phillips Foods. The neighborhood got an economic boost when athletic apparel company Under Armour set up its headquarters at Tide Point, where it employs hundreds.
