Baltimore City Convention Center Renovation / Expansion Study

study summary

In November 2016, MSA's Board of Directors approved a request by the Mayor of Baltimore to conduct various program and construction related analysis to determine the program and technical feasibility for a proposed Baltimore Convention Center (BCC) expansion. The Study considered both a stand-alone convention center as well as a hybrid facility inclusive of a hotel and/or arena.

Funding is being provided by a mix of public, private, City and State dollars. 

In July 2018, MSA's Board of Directors approved a request by the Mayor of Baltimore to further study the recommended scenario from the Phase 1 report. Phase 2 of the BCC study will outline preliminary design, cost estimating (construction and projects), and financing modeling. The Phase 2 study began in fall 2018.
