While Amazon may not be coming to Port Covington just yet, but the global retail giant is already expanding its footprint in Baltimore.
Amid the fanfare and future-thinking surrounding Baltimore’s proposal to bring Amazon HQ2 to Port Covington, one question remained: What’s actually in the bid?
As city leaders and developers were pouring hundreds of hours into their Port Covington pitch for Amazon’s future second North American headquarters, a neighborhood group was quietly assembling its own application for HQ2.
Sometimes turning in an application is a big deal, especially when it involves lots of money, jobs and tax breaks.
Lawmakers in Baltimore County will decide tonight whether to formally back a $2 million loan for Amazon to build a new distribution center in Sparrows Point.
