However, addresses within the main office complex in the area, Green Spring Station, are considered to be within Lutherville.
Green Spring Station
The Green Spring Station complex is located at the intersection of Falls and Joppa Roads, near the interchange of I-695 and the Jones Falls Expressway, and is also bordered by Greenspring Valley Road, though the segment of this road that runs through the complex is identified as Station Drive. Seminary Avenue also begins very close to the location. The complex has offices for several large companies, as well as some upscale shops, restaurants, banks, and the largest indoor tennis facility in the Mid-Atlantic. The most notable company with offices at Green Spring Station is Johns Hopkins Hospital, which has a satellite branch that takes up a large portion of the grounds, and has been operating at this location since 1994.
The main roads in the Brooklandville area are Falls Road, Greenspring Valley Road, Joppa Road, and Old Court Road.
The Green Spring Station complex on weekdays is served by the Maryland Transit Administration's Bus Route 60 every 40–60 minutes. This bus links to the Mt. Washington Light Rail Stop and the Reisterstown Plaza Metro Subway Station.
Free service to Green Spring Station from the Johns Hopkins Medical Campus is available on the hospital's Green Spring Shuttle hourly on weekdays.
From 1830 until 1955, Brooklandville was served by the Green Spring Valley Branch of the old Northern Central Railway (later part of the Pennsylvania Railroad). The former station still stands, now a private residence.
