Baltimore Sun Co. may sell Calvert St. complex

May 08, 1991

As part of a five-year plan for The Baltimore Sun, publisher Michael Davies said there is a possibility the newspaper might sell its Calvert Street building.

In an internal publication distributed to employees today, Davies wrote there is a "slim" chance that the Calvert Street properties could be sold and an office tower built at Sun Park in Port Covington. Sun Park is the site of the company's new printing, packaging and distribution in South Baltimore east of Interstate 95 near Hanover Street.

"This would unite all major functions at one site and would enable us to provide first-class working conditions for all employees," Davies wrote.

However, "this would only work if we could build an office tower for basically the selling price of the Calvert Street complex," he said.

The Baltimore Sun is a Times Mirror Co. subsidiary that publishes The Evening Sun and The Sun.

Included in the five-year plan are partial reorganization plans for both newspapers that would include news and advertising zoning for readers.
