Baltimore Convention Center Expansion Market & Economic Analysis (2011)

study summary

In May 2011, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Governor Martin O’Malley requested Maryland Stadium Authority to study the viability of a public-private sector plan submitted by the Greater Baltimore Committee. The plan was to rebuild and expand the east wing of the Baltimore Convention Center, and construct an adjacent 18,500-seat arena and 500-room hotel.

The study includes a market and economic study of the convention center expansion and incremental tax benefits for all three venues, and a funding strategy.
