Sportswear giant Under Armour is downsizing its future headquarters in its home city of Baltimore, US. The sportswear giant has announced plans to scale back its global corporate and Americas regional functions into a 50-acre site in Port Covington, which it purchased five years ago.
According to Under Armour, the headquarters — expected to be fully occupied by 2025 — was reimagined as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to reshape the work environment through the now-pervasive hybrid home-and-office model. The location will include retail and office spaces, an NCAA-regulation track-and-field facility, as well as multi-sport playing field and basketball courts.
“The campus will represent the future of performance grounded in innovation that embodies the ethos we live, breathe and sweat as a team every single day,” president and CEO Patrik Frisk said in a statement. “We are excited to continue our commitment to the city of Baltimore and provide an even better workspace for teammates, a new retail location and a best-in-class athletic facility as we plan for the future of the brand.”
