The City issued a call for developers who wanted to make the Cross Street Market in Federal Hill their next venture. When it came time to submit plans, a plan conceived in part by ex-Under Armour exec Scott Plank was the only one to appear, according to SouthBmore.com.
Plank, the older brother of Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank, is partnering with Arsh Mirmiran of Caves Valley Partners on the plan. He said Cross Street Market could become “the next Belvedere Square.” The Baltimore Public Markets Corp. called for a proposal that would “achieve the highest quality of architectural/interior design and construction” for the 31,800 sq. ft. market, which was built more than 60 years ago.
While it makes the process to winning the bid easier, that doesn’t mean they’re a shoo-in. According to Baltimore Business Journal, the developers will still have to present to the Baltimore Public Markets Corp. to be approved.
