Maryland Stadium Authority


Velodrome Feasibility Analysis

The Maryland Stadium Authority, developer and owner of the renowned Oriole Park at Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium, engaged B&D in 2000 as part of a joint venture with the architecture and planning firms Cho, Wilks, Benn and Arquitectonica, to determine the feasibility of developing a velodrome in Baltimore. Our responsibilities included market research, analysis of comparable facilities in other markets, and operating financial projections for the facility. Our analysis identified a strong demand for competitive bicycling facilities such as the proposed velodrome in Baltimore and identified a potential need for the velodrome created by the Washington-Baltimore region’s bid effort to secure the 2012 Olympics. Though the Olympic Bid was not awarded to the region, the velodrome remains a possibility for future development.
