BALTIMORE, MD (Monday, April 19, 2021) — Mayor Brandon M. Scott issued the following statement on the Governor's announcement that State employees will be moved from State Center to Baltimore's Central Business District:

“Thanks to Governor Hogan and Senate President Ferguson for their commitment to Baltimore’s Central Business District amid recent vacancy trends. While this timely investment seeks to retain jobs and stimulate absorption in the downtown office market, my administration will work with stakeholders to ensure surrounding neighborhoods can also benefit. State Center investment has the potential to bind communities across Baltimore, and it is important that the State of Maryland and the City work together to achieve this.”
