Under Armour Reopens Port Covington Office Building

| July 11, 2022 | 0 Comments

Last week Under Armour employees returned to the site of the company’s Port Covington campus for the first time since early 2020 as the Building 37 office building reopened. Building 37 first opened in 2016 after the company transformed the former Sam’s Club into an office building. It closed in 2020 for renovations to better suit the Under Armour product and innovation teams.

With the move into Building 37, Under Armour has now officially vacated its UA LightHouse office space at City Garage on the western side of Port Covington. Under Armour’s former space will be converted into lab space for companies specializing in life sciences to perform research and development. City Garage was sold to South Duvall in 2021.

Last week was also the official return to the office for Under Armour’s U.S.-based team members since the beginning of the pandemic. Under Armour’s headquarters is still at Tide Point in Locust Point, but the company will move completely to Port Covington in 2024 after the completion of its planned 280,000 sq. ft. office, retail, and fitness building. Under Armour started construction in February on a NCAA-regulation track and field facility with a multi-sport playing field on land just east of Building 37.

Under Armour Chief People and Administrative Officer Tchernavia Rocker told SouthBMore.com in an email last week, “The majority of our teammates are working on a hybrid schedule, meaning that they will be working both remotely and in the office. This is designed to balance collaboration with work-life integration. We are also excited that our product and innovation teams have also officially moved this week to the newly renovated Building 37 at Port Covington, which will lead to better integration between the teams.”

Under Armour reactivating its Port Covington campus adds to a slew of activity in the South Baltimore neighborhood. Just north of the campus is Chapter 1B of the Port Covington development which is under construction on five new buildings totaling 1.1 million sq. ft. Portions of Chapter 1B will open later this year.

28 Walker is additionally expected to start demolishing the 25-acre former Locke Insulators property at 2525 Insulator Dr. next door to Under Armour’s Port Covington campus next month. It will add 814 housing units to Port Covington.
