Port Covington Begins Next Phase Of Construction

Video Transcript

DENISE KOCH: One of the largest redevelopment projects in the country is now moving forward right here in a South Baltimore waterfront community. Governor Hogan along with Under Armour founder Kevin Plank and dozens of other local leaders broke ground on chapter 1B of the Port Covington project. This kicks off the start of construction of buildings in the more than one-million square-foot development.

It will include new offices, homes, retail space, parks, and tens of thousands of new jobs.

LARRY HOGAN: This is a big deal, not just for South Baltimore, not just for the city, but for the State of Maryland.

MIKE GAFFNEY: The exclusive waterfront community, there's not a lot of that in the world, and I think this project is going to be the new template for how to do that in the right way.

DENISE KOCH: Some of the buildings that are part of this next phase of construction will open next year. The project started back in 2019 and right now includes an Under Armour campus, Rye Street Tavern, Sagamore Spirit Distillery, and the entrepreneurial hub, City Garage. Leaders say it will bring a big boost to the city economy, and it will benefit surrounding neighborhoods.
