Last week, SouthBMore.com went on a tour of the ROOST Apartment Hotel in the Baltimore Peninsula development and got an overhead view of Under Armour’s new Global Headquarters.

Under Armour began construction on a new 280,000 sq. ft. office, retail, and fitness building called TMB2 in December. TMB2 is a five-story, 75 ft. tall building with an east-west orientation. Under Armour is hoping to open TMB2 by the end of 2024.

The first floor of TMB2 will have a two-story, 30,000 sq. ft. Under Armour Brand House retail store. This will have a northwest orientation that aligns with the street grid of the future phase of the Baltimore Peninsula development. There will additionally be a two-story, 30,000 sq. ft. fitness-oriented performance center with a southwest orientation.

The upper four floors will be office space designed to “promote collaboration.”

Under Armour recently opened a NCAA-regulation track and field facility with a multi-sport playing field at its new campus. This facility will serve primarily as a testing ground for Under Armour’s innovation, product development, and sports marketing. The athletic facility is available to Under Armour team members and the greater Baltimore community through shared-use agreements and special events. It has bleachers with a solar powered canopy overtop and a seating capacity of 1,400.

A former Sam’s Club at Under Armour’s campus was transformed into a 170,000 sq. ft. office building called Building 37 that opened in 2016. A 430 foot Maryland Flag mural was recently installed on this building. A former Walmart building (Building 96) still stands and has been used for warehouse sales, PPE manufacturing, town halls, and retail mockup stores.

The TMB2 construction site has two tower cranes and four concrete stairwells have risen out of the ground. Site grading has also taken place.

Upon completion of TMB2, Under Armour will fully transition from Locust Point to the Baltimore Peninsula development in Port Covington. Under Armour owns the Tide Point facility in Locust Point which makes up part of its current campus. Tide Point is 14.6 acres and has 406,569 sq. ft. of buildings. The company will look to sell this property, but it is not yet put it on the market.

A grass lot that is home to the Locust Point Community Garden at 1134 Hull St. is owned by Under Armour and is currently listed for sale.

Under Armour also owns a large parking lot that borders Hull St., Towson St., Cuba St., and the Port of Baltimore. The company did not comment on whether this property is currently for sale after a SouthBMore.com inquiry.

Under Armour also leases a former warehouse, which was turned into an office building called the Cheer Building, across the street from Tide Point. The company will let the lease expire on that building.
