We're directly benefiting the neighborhoods around Baltimore Peninsula economically and environmentally. Through our Joint efforts, we're elevating Baltimore through a rising tide of impactful, inclusive and equitable change.
We seek to be America’s first purpose-driven impact community - a new category of urban development and community anchored in equity and opportunity.
With up to 14 million square foot public/private partnership of historic significance, this transformational development opportunity has the scale and ambition to lift Baltimore and create a model for urban redevelopment.
The development team entered into a historic Community Benefits Agreement with the six adjacent communities to outline how they benefit as the neighborhood is successfully developed, including a dedicated funding source driven by the economic success of the project generating funding in perpetuity. The team also entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the City of Baltimore (MOU), including approximately $135 million in commitments for Baltimore.
Baltimore Peninsula is a call to action for change-makers from Baltimore and beyond to demonstrate the power of a new model for equitable urban development.
Catalyzed by the new global headquarters of Under Armour, Baltimore Peninsula offers like-minded leaders a platform for progress. New offices are opening on a fully entitled site at a scale designed for big ideas and bold.
In 2016, Baltimore Peninsula partnered with the South Baltimore Six (SB6) communities of Brooklyn, Cherry Hill, Curtis Bay, Lakeland, Mt. Winans, and Westport to formally create SB7 Coalition Inc.
SB7 Coalition's mission is to inspire, enlighten, motivate, and empower our communities to maintain their greatness; to create a strong coalition to advocate and revitalize communities; and to enhance quality of life through improvement of education, housing, public health, public safety, and economic development.
Baltimore Peninsula sits at the center of a multi-million dollar restoration project to connect the 11 miles of shoreline along the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River.
South Baltimore's waterfront is being transformed to be more resilient, connected and accessible to all residents through this community-driven initiative.
