A total of seven digital billboards have now been installed around Downtown Baltimore.

From Downtown Partnership of Baltimore in December 2023:

In partnership with Orange Barrel Media (OBM) and Capitol Outdoor Media, Downtown Partnership is excited to announce the launch of a digital sign network north of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. OBM’s first digital spectacular is located at 36 S. Charles, and OBM plans to complete six more by January 2024 and another by summer 2024. Capitol Outdoor Media’s first sign is located at 100 E. Pratt Street, and expects to complete two more by summer 2024.

The billboard sites are:

  • 36 S. Charles St.
  • 100 S. Charles St. (2 billboards)
  • 300 S. Charles St
  • 100 E. Pratt St. (2 billboards)
  • 601 E. Pratt St.
  • 124 Market Place
  • 30 Light St.
  • 204 E. Lombard St.
  • 55 Market Place

While the proposal was met with some pushback, it was endorsed by the Baltimore City Council in 2022 and approved by a 6-2 vote in the Planning Commission of the City of Baltimore.

“These billboards will provide much more for our community than meets the eye,” said Shelonda Stokes, president of Downtown Partnership of Baltimore, in a press release. “They will serve as a free marketing resource for small and local businesses, a space to spotlight artists who call Charm City home, and open the door for Baltimore to host future world-class sporting events. We’re grateful for our partners, landlords, representatives, and neighbors in the district for bringing this bright vision to life, and welcome with open arms the opportunities this project brings.”
