Harborplace in Baltimore has been in a steady decline for years, as store after store and restaurant after restaurant closed. Only a couple of places remain open and the entire Light Street Pavilion has been shuttered.

Now, the reimagining of Harborplace has begun. Late last year, a local developer named P. David Bramble purchased the property, and pledged to revive this centerpiece of downtown that was once a proud symbol of Baltimore’s Renaissance. Bramble is the managing partner atMCB Real Estate.

Christopher Mfume, a son of Congressman Kweisi Mfume, is the managing partner of CLD Partners. His development portfolio includes a number of residential properties across Baltimore.
