Baltimore Sun plans summer move from longtime headquarters

The Baltimore Sun Media Group plans to move from its longtime headquarters on the edge of downtown Baltimore to renovated space at its printing plant in a waterfront development.

The Baltimore Sun reports its publisher and editor-in-chief, Trif Alatzas, announced Thursday that the company expects to move newsroom and business operations for its flagship paper and several community newspapers to Port Covington this summer. About 300 employees are currently based at the Calvert Street offices, which have served as headquarters since 1950.

The Baltimore Sun's current lease expires in June. Tribune Media already has sold the property to Atapco Properties.

The media group has a long-term lease on the printing plant property, owned by Under Armour CEO Kevin Plan's private development firm, Sagamore Development.
