The team at Weller Development Company is proud to build in Baltimore. As real estate developers, we love creating beautiful, functional and fun spaces to bring people together. We are proud of our efforts and community partnerships to maximize opportunities for all people. We are part of the urban fabric in this amazing city.
Baltimore has a strong legacy of innovation. Some of the City’s contributions to the world include the post office system, illuminated city streets, free library system, the bottle cap, and the electric streetcar. Baltimore is the birthplace of the Star-Spangled Banner and Clipper ships, which helped victories during the Revolution and War of 1812. Baltimore contributes great citizens, civic leaders like Thurgood Marshall, creative geniuses like Billie Holiday, to record-setting athletes like Michael Phelps. And the innovation continues, as Baltimore produces thought leaders, industry-leading companies, world-renowned educational institutions, and countless creative ventures. We celebrate diversity. We embrace creativity and the arts in our eclectic neighborhoods. Ask anyone from here or who spends a lot of time here: to know Baltimore is to love it.
The waterfront renaissance in Port Covington is helping to define Baltimore’s next chapter with a new dynamic neighborhood rising on the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River. We already have an amazing mix of restaurants such as Rye Street Tavern and Nick’s Fish House, renowned companies like Under Armour and The Baltimore Sun, spaces for entrepreneurs and makers at City Garage, Sagamore Spirit Distillery, parks, marinas, and more.
Momentum is gaining with the start of infrastructure construction for the next three million square feet of development. The neighborhood will soon be active around the clock with new residences, offices, shops, restaurants, hotels, markets, event spaces, and public parks and piers – all starting to deliver in 2021. Office leasing is underway, so if you’re looking for the perfect place to locate and grow your business, Port Covington has a robust array of build-to-suit options. From loft-style offices, traditional offices with flexible floor plates, to a life sciences building specifically designed for labs, plus its variety of amenities, robust technology infrastructure and water views, Port Covington offers an unrivaled business location to attract and retain talent.
Conveniently located in South Baltimore, Port Covington is one of the most uniquely connected and accessible neighborhoods in the region, with public transit onsite, regional rail hubs and BWI International Airport nearby, and direct vehicular access to downtown Baltimore and I-95. Several transit enhancements are planned, including expanded water taxi access.
Our mission is to ensure that the transformational nature of Port Covington – one of the largest development sites in the country – reaches beyond its physical boundaries, primarily focused on uplifting the six communities to the South of Port Covington. Indicative of the transformational nature of the Port Covington development, there is an MOU with Baltimore City valued at over $135 million that includes funding and agreements for workforce development, local hiring and apprenticeships, support for women- and minority-owned businesses, community partnerships, and much more. We are proud to serve in Baltimore and continue Baltimore’s strong legacy.
