Responding to a robust rebound in demand, Corporate Office Properties Trust, one of the largest developers and managers of commercial office space in the Mid-Atlantic, is launching an ambitious expansion in Columbia Gateway with the construction of three office complexes in the 635-acre business park. Technically, the company has announced four projects, but one of them already is well under construction and came as no surprise. Randall M. Griffin, president and chief executive officer of the company, also said that the firm will relocate its headquarters to Columbia Gateway from its offices on Centre Park Drive.

The Columbia-based Universities Space Research Association said Wednesday that it has bought a new headquarters building for $12.5 million and will remain in Howard County after considering a move. The association - which works to advance space-related sciences and exploration - employs 500 people nationwide, about 50 of whom are based in downtown Columbia. The group has had its headquarters there since 1976. Officials said they looked at locations in the county and in the Washington area, and also considered adding a building to a complex the organization owns in Houston.

Linda Wilson gazed with horror at the vultures nesting on the balcony just off her fifth-floor office and waiting to ensnare field mice below. Thus was her baptism to Columbia Gateway. It might be more accurate to say it was Wilson's introduction to the idea of Columbia Gateway because other than the swooping predators and a scattering of single-story offices in the distance, there was little else but vacant land. No more. Today, the office park, which is flanked by Interstate 95, Route 175 and Snowden River Parkway, boasts almost 70 office complexes, housing some of the region's biggest companies and employing 11,000 people.

With its homemade pastas, early interest in seasonal ingredients and responsible sourcing, and enthusiasm for wine, Columbia's Aida Bistro and Wine Bar has had a successful run, earning a loyal clientele and good reviews over the past eight years. So if you asked owners Joe and Mary Barbera if there is anything they'd want to change about Aida, they'd say: YES! For one thing, the kitchen has always been too small for Aida to fully accommodate a lunchtime business, and the bar is only big enough for a few people to dine at, with no room for gathering and mingling.
