Maryland Port Adm. Moves To Baltimore World Trade Center

The Maryland Port Administration has moved its headquarters offices to the World Trade Center Baltimore.

The move affects all MPA personnel and operations formerly centered in the seven-story office building at 19 South Charles Street, which has served as an interim headquarters for the agency for the last five years.

The MPA will occupy the 16th to 20th floors of the WTCB, with executive offices, trade development, transportation departments, and legal departments on the 20th floor. The MPA's engineering and planning departments will occupy the entire 19th floor, while port promotion, finance and administration, purchasing, real estate and insurance departments will share the 18th floor.

The remaining two floors will house accounting, data processing and the mailroom on the 17th; and personnel, terminal operations, and port services on the 16th. The latter will also include the MPA's building manager's office.

All telephone numbers currently used by the MPA will remain in effect and unchanged. The remaining more than 300 employees assigned to MPA terminals in the port of Baltimore (Dundalk, Locust Point and Clinton Street Marine Terminals), Pier 7 boat operations center and field engineers will not be affected by the move.
