Port Covington Community Investment Poised to Launch. Promises to be fulfilled?

In 2016, Baltimoreans organized to demand community investment from a developer seeking one of the largest subsidies in city history.

Sagamore Development had planned a brand-new mixed-use waterfront neighborhood that would host a corporate campus for Under Armour, one of Baltimore’s biggest business success stories. In pursuit of a $535 million package to finance roads, rail, parks, and other public improvements at Port Covington, the developers appeared at a Baltimore City Council hearing, displaying projections that Under Armour staff would quadruple over two decades and saying, “It’s grow here or grow somewhere else.”

Community leaders and citizens showed up by the hundreds, buoyed by the civic energy that had followed Freddie Gray’s death a year earlier. Many objected to what they saw as inequitable development: the city’s repeated use of financing packages to spur development of downtown and waterfront neighborhoods rather than the city’s poorer sections.

The city and Sagamore struck a deal in September 2016 after months of acrimony over whether the package was truly beneficial to all city residents or a giveaway to a well-connected developer. Four years later, Baltimore is about to learn whether lofty promises about affordable housing, jobs and minority investment will come true.

Water, crabs and history: 9 1/2 Hours in Dundalk

Dundalk Town Center

People are staying closer to home these days, but there’s still lots to do in the region. 9 ½ hours is a new feature with suggestions for local day trips.

So you’re in the mood to get out on the water and eat some crabs. Annapolis and the Eastern Shore are obvious choices. But have you considered Dundalk?

The post-industrial waterfront community on the East Side of Baltimore County seems perpetually poised for rebirth, with an authentic tank-top-and-tattoo personality that occasionally serves as a regional punch line. It’s also got miles of waterfront, cool breweries and restaurants, and a heck of a history.

After 16 years of out-of-town ownership, The Village of Cross Keys is back in local hands.

“Time to Unlock the Potential,” says a blue and white sign next to the front gatehouse, bearing a giant key similar to ones on the Cross Keys logo. “Now Under Local Ownership. Caves Valley Partners.”

More than two years after it first expressed interest, Caves Valley Partners completed its acquisition of the commercial assets of Cross Keys yesterday and immediately disclosed plans to upgrade and expand the mixed-use community at 5100 Falls Road.

Bullhead Pit Beef opens stall in Cross Street Market

After 10 years of selling grilled meats from a food truck, Bullhead Pit Beef opened a brick-and-mortar restaurant today at Cross Street Market, market owners Caves Valley Partners and CANAdev announced.

The restaurant was originally slated to open at the market in March, but Bullhead owner Larry Jackson told Baltimore Fishbowl that the coronavirus put their plans on hold.

“The shutdown pretty much stopped all of my vendors, so it was pretty impossible for me to get a lot of stuff,” Jackson said. “Also, we slowed down because we weren’t sure what coronavirus was and opening up in the middle of coronavirus wasn’t advisable.”

Now that Maryland has lifted some restrictions on restaurants, and Cross Street Market has implemented safety precautions, Bullhead’s restaurant is open for business.
