I investigated the 25th Street Station Project, a multimillion-dollar development on 25th and Howard Street in Baltimore. The development will include a shopping center with large retailers such as Walmart; the project is aimed at revitalizing the area and providing nearby residents with convenient shopping and job opportunities. Through the lens, I study the tactics of big-box retailers from the Baltimore community to the international stage.
