Baltimore’s city Planning Commission approved Under Armour’s plan to pursue waterfront improvement projects near its Locust Point headquarters with the help of tax-increment financing. The Baltimore-based sportswear company is the biggest landowner in Locust Point.
Under Armour hopes to finish some of its waterfront development projects in time for the War of 1812 bicentennial celebration, said Mark Pollak, a partner at Ballard Spahr and Practice Leader of its Real Estate Development Group. The company has more projects still in the planning stage. It hopes to build a community pier at the end of Hull Street, a “green way” that would connect Key Highway to Fort Avenue and Fort McHenry. Under Armour also plans to make bulkhead improvements.
