Gov. Moore announces $67 million for Harborplace redevelopment
(Annapolis, MD) -- Governor Wes Moore says the state of Maryland will invest $67.5 million in the redevelopment of Harborplace.
He made the announcement during the second annual Baltimore Together summit regarding MCB Real Estate' plans to revitalize the waterfront area of the Inner Harbor.
The governor says it isn't just about redefining a cultural landmark, it's about how the narrative of a city is rewritten.
Four decades ago our city reimagined the Inner Harbor, and brought that vision to life against heavy odds. Yesterday our generation of leaders presented a 2.0 version of a revitalized Harbor that represents potential generational change for our city. pic.twitter.com/YTlufZqPyS— Office of Baltimore City Council (@BaltCouncil) October 31, 2023
The proposed redevelopment for Harborplace includes new promenades, a residential tower, retail space and a park.
Moore says the investment is about ensuring that the state's largest city claims its rightful place in the American story.
He says for this to be Maryland's decade, it has to be Baltimore's time.
We’ve been working on reimagining Harborplace to welcome Baltimoreans from all walks of life for a long time. With public green spaces and event venues that showcase the Harbor as one of our greatest assets, pedestrian-friendly retail, and liveable communities built for all. pic.twitter.com/3vnSu54HUn— Brandon M.
