Eight years ago, DPOB released a Strategic Plan for the Downtown Management Authority (DMA) district that identified 23 troubled properties holding Downtown Baltimore back. Since then, all but 4 have been redeveloped, including new towers that have risen on formerly empty parking lots. At least four public parks have undergone major renovations, collectively costing more than $15 million. Due to these transformations, the DMA boasts the greatest concentration of employment in the City, in addition to its explosive residential growth. The DMA is the primary economic engine of the City. This small geographic area, just 1% of the City’s land, accounts for at least $100 million of tax revenues to the City per year.
