BALTIMORE – Amtrak is looking to redevelop the area around its Baltimore station to include 1.6 million square feet of retail, residential and office space, the Baltimore Sun reports.

On Thursday, the passenger railroad announced that it was negotiating with a group called Penn Station Partners to help lead the redevelopment effort. The group is a coalition of Baltimore area firms that will help create the master plan for the project.

“This development is a historic opportunity for Amtrak and Penn Station Partners to bring to life a bold future for Penn Station, generating jobs and sustained economic opportunities for our Baltimore communities and beyond,” Mayor Catherine Pugh says.

The station serves both Amtrak and MARC Penn Line commuter trains.
