Southbmore.com – Under Armour’s newest office space, Building 37, converted the former Sam’s Club at the former Port Covington Shopping Center into a 170,000 sq. ft. work space for the company’s finance and IT department. Under Armour is calling the building Phase zero of its new approximately four million sq. ft. campus at the former waterfront shopping center. Under Armour plans four future phases at the 50-acre campus and unveiled its master plan yesterday at the Urban Design & Architecture Review Panel.
Under Armour currently has 1800 to 1900 Baltimore-based employees and needed the space immediately as it is adding approximately 300 employees each year. The company completed Building 37 at the end of last year and can accommodate up to 600 employees. Under Armour’s current headquarters and campus is at Tide Point in Locust Point with offices also at McHenry Row.
The new office building was designed by architecture firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, which will also head up the design of the 50-acre campus. The Sam’s Club had a 130,000 sq. ft. footprint and Under Armour constructed an additional 40,000 sq. ft. mezzanine level in building. Building 37 includes a 350-person auditorium; 29 conference rooms with audiovisual technology, 14 of which have video conferencing capabilities; its IT help desk; open stairwells; collaborative workspaces; and, “double-height perimeter spaces,” which can also be used for events.
Building 37 also features the Humble & Hungry cafe with a local organic menu; The Bank Shot, a local family-owned company serving freshly brewed coffees, lattes, and teas (opening in spring); and, an Under Armour Performance Center fitness venue which opens up to an outdoor basketball court.
