"How much is that land worth?"

Pimlico Good Neighbors is a residential neighborhood that also includes the Pimlico horse track. West Northern Parkway, park Heights Avenue, West Belvedere Avenue and Pimlico Road generally form the borders of this neighborhood. The homes here include the typical attached single-family “row homes” found throughout Baltimore, as well as single-family detached homes. Most appear to be relatively well maintained.

As you can imagine the track has been the main focus of the neighborhood over the years. Residents living here will find little else in the way of neighborhood amenities. Although there are a few stores and restaurants along Park Heights Avenue, the selection is limited. There are no schools in the neighborhood, so residents will need to send their children to schools in other neighborhoods. Dedicated green space can be found at Pimilco Good Neighbor Park. As interest in horse racing declines,I am sure that developers are attracted to the land that holds the track and associated structures and parking lots. No one knows what the future will bring.

Like many neighborhoods in large cities, crimes against people and property can occur at any time and crime rates can vary from street to street and day to day. As always, check recent crime statistics to make an informed decision on any neighborhood you are considering living in or visiting.

I am bullish on this neighborhood, because changes are going to happen as interest in horse racing declines and the economy improves. The land is just too valuable not to be developed.
