Sagamore Pendry Baltimore is a joint project with Kevin Plank’s Sagamore Development Co. Plank, Founder and CEO of Under Armour and a Maryland native, is making significant commitments across Baltimore through strategic investments managed by his privately-held company, Plank Industries, the parent company of Sagamore Development. In addition to the hotel, Sagamore Development is the developer behind Port Covington, a transformational 266-acre mixed-use redevelopment in South Baltimore and one of the largest urban renewal efforts in America. NoHo Hospitality Group has also partnered with Sagamore Development to develop and operate a restaurant adjacent to the Sagamore Spirit Distillery in Port Covington.
Sagamore Pendry Baltimore sits in the heart of Fell’s Point on Recreation Pier, once famous as an entry point for immigrants to the US; the historic building, formerly home to a community recreation center, was a symbol not only of the city’s all-American heritage and influence but of its prospects and potential as well.
“Andrew Carmellini and NoHo Hospitality Group bring extraordinary experience and talent to the project, and we are thrilled to partner with them on our first East Coast Pendry hotel,” said Michael Fuerstman, co-founder and creative director, Pendry Hotels.
“We're excited to partner with Sagamore Pendry Baltimore and Sagamore Development Co. as they continue to encourage the development of Baltimore, and bring a national eye to the city,” said Chef Andrew Carmellini. “The timing is just right.”
