Support Businesses That Ignite a Community

The 3rd is opening a revolutionary space in a revolutionary town. 
Columbia, MD, the nation's first planned community, was built upon James Rouse's vision for inclusion and equality.  He saw a community, positioned between two powerful American cities, Baltimore, MD and Washington, DC.  that brought the tenants of diversity and inclusion to a city-like suburb.  His vision was big. His execution was bigger.  Our work aligns with this legacy. 


The 3rd is bringing a mixed-use community hub that provides a gathering place for the entire community while showcasing and incubating WOC owned businesses. Nothing but big vision and big execution over here.
