Amazon to occupy second Baltimore warehouse [Baltimore Sun]: “The city’s Building Department issued a permit for a new 345,000-square-foot, one-story warehouse located at 5501 Holabird Ave. that could employ about 325 people during peak hours. The Planning Department’s site plan review committee approved the proposal in January.”

The Urban Shift in the U.S. Start-Up Economy, in One Chart [Atlantic Cities]: “San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood; Cambridge, Massachusetts’ Kendall Square; Lower Manhattan: These are the dense, walkable neighborhoods that have become the new hubs of America’s tech scene, as the center of gravity for venture investment and start-up activity shifts from suburbs to urban centers.”

5 takeaways from decision to scrap Maryland Health Connection [The Daily Record]: “Even if Maryland’s system had worked perfectly, it would still be three times more expensive to maintain over time than either Connecticut’s system or a partnership with the federal exchange.”
