In collaboration with Sagamore Development Company, the development enterprise of Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank, Pendry Hotels is developing its first East Coast hotel, Sagamore Pendry Baltimore. Located on the Reception Pier of the waterfront neighborhood of Fells Point in Baltimore, Md., the 128-room hotel is slated to open in early 2017. War Horse, owned by Plank’s brother and former Under Armour executive Scott Plank, is also a partner in the project.

“We are looking forward to bringing Pendry Hotels to the wonderful city of Baltimore,” said Alan Fuerstman, founder and CEO of Montage Hotels & Resorts. “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Kevin Plank and the entire Sagamore Development team on this project and we look forward to Sagamore Pendry Baltimore becoming a pillar of the community.”

Sagamore Pendry Baltimore will have multiple dining options, including a three-meal restaurant, whiskey bar, and an outdoor pool at the pier’s end with cabanas and a bar and grill. The hotel will feature over 10,000 square-feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, including its restored grand ballroom. Additionally, the hotel will be home to an art collection including a Botero horse sculpture, which will be the centerpiece of the courtyard.

“It was important for us to partner with a management group with the talent and experience to make this hotel truly special,” said Kevin Plank. “Alan Fuerstman and his Pendry Hotels team fit the bill perfectly, and the Sagamore Pendry hotel will be hugely additive to Fells Point, while fitting in comfortably with the culture of that diverse and historic neighborhood. We consider this to be one of our signature investments in the city of Baltimore.”

Sagamore Pendry Baltimore, designed by BHC Architects with interiors by Patrick Sutton Design, will include callbacks to Baltimore history.
