Loyola University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University are a short distance to the east. Light rail service is available via the Cold Spring Lane and Woodberry stations.

Major redevelopment at Meadow Mill, Clipper Mill and Union Mill, coupled with long-time interest in the Hampden area, has sparked even more development in the Jones Falls corridor.
