Port Covington

Port Covington has sat empty for decades despite promises of development. Now, the real estate firm owned by Kevin Plank, the founder and CEO of Under Armour, has presented plans to the city to transform the area with a major mixed-use waterfront development. Sagamore Development's project would establish a new neighborhood and skyline with up to 13 million square feet of offices, homes, stores and restaurants, and a shore remade with parks and running paths.

Steiner begins the show with a look at the controversial development plan for Port Covington, including a requested $535 Million TIF, proposed by Under Armour CEO and founder Kevin Plank. With: Dr. Lawrence Brown, public health consultant and Assistant Professor of Public Health in the School of Community Health and Policy at Morgan State University; and Mark Reutter, Senior Editor and Reporter for the Baltimore Brew.
