In 1987, legislation was enacted approving Camden Yards as the site for the new stadium complex and granting to the Stadium Authority administrative and operational powers, including condemnation authority and a special financing mechanism.
While efforts to secure an NFL expansion team continued, legislation was enacted permitting the construction of a new baseball park at Camden Yards, conting...ent upon securing a long-term lease with the Orioles. In 1988, when a memorandum of agreement was negotiated between the team and the Maryland Stadium Authority, property acquisition, design and construction began on what would become Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The ballpark opened on April 6,1992 to rave reviews from architectural critics, fans and players. The opening resulted in the first significant increase in the size of MSA's staff with the addition of facilities management personnel. Committed to maintaining the baseball park in a first-class manner, personnel were selected both for their abilities and willingness to ensure that Camden Yards remains the best ballpark in the nation.
Capital Projects Development Group was developed as part of the Maryland Stadium Authority in December 2014 as a result of the $1.1 Billion Baltimore City Schools Revitalization Initiative.
The Baltimore City Public Schools Construction and Revitalization Act of 2013 passed in the final days of the legislative session. It authorizes the City of Baltimore, Baltimore City Board of School Commissioners, Interagency Committee on School Construction, and MSA to collaborate on the Plan.
The Act authorizes MSA to leverage $60 million dollars into bond money to support an estimated 23-28 school renovation and replacement projects. Construction is expected to begin in late 2015/early 2016, and the program is on schedule to be completed by summer 2020.
