SP+ was selected to design an ambitious and tech-forward parking plan for this project, which currently includes a nearly 1,200-space garage equipped with SP+ proprietary Sphere Commerce™ On Demand Platform and license plate recognition (LPR) technology for enforcement.

This year, Baltimore Peninsula opened over 1.1 million square feet of new office, retail, and mixed-income residential. Highlights include the recent unveiling of an over four-acre outdoor sports venue in partnership with Volo Sports, the opening of ROOST Apartment Hotel, the announcement of Clyde’s Restaurant Group’s takeover of Rye Street Tavern and welcoming its first residents in April to Rye House and 250 Mission.
