MAG Partners – South Baltimore Port Covington
Herrick represented MAG Partners in connection with a multi-faceted transaction with MacFarlane Partners, Sagamore Ventures and investment partner Goldman Sachs for the development of a megaproject in South Baltimore’s Port Covington. The $5.5 billion development project spans 235 acres along Cromwell Street; includes up to 14 million square feet of shops, restaurants, office space and housing; and 40 acres of parks across 45 new city blocks. The transaction involved several joint venture agreements, development services agreements, employment agreements and other documentation. MAG and MacFarlane are taking the reins from Weller Development Co. for leasing, marketing and "placemaking" campaigns for the current $500 million, 1.1 million-square-foot phase, and will lead all future development outside that initial phase.
