In two years, cranes, bulldozers and construction fencing could give way to glassy buildings, open green space and outdoor plazas in South Baltimore’s Port Covington neighborhood, officials said Wednesday — a timeline they said could be met even despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. A slew of state and city officials, community activists and business leaders celebrated the progress of the “mini-city” at a groundbreaking event that featured both in-person and recorded remarks. The second phase of building and construction includes more than 1 million square feet of development and features retail and office space, residential units, parks and parking spaces.
