1 Light Street developer paying to send Baltimore deputy mayor to China

Nov. 1st, 2016

Baltimore Deputy Mayor Colin Tarbert is headed to China — on developer Madison Marquette's dime.

Tarbert, the deputy mayor for economic and neighborhood development, will be heading to China from Nov. 3 through Nov. 8 looking for investors for the 1 Light Street development, according to city documents. The 28-story office and apartment tower is being built downtown by Washington, D.C.-based Madison Marquette. The company is co-developing the project with Reston, Va.-based Metropolitan Partnership Ltd., which redeveloped the neighboring 10 Light St. apartment tower.

The 1 Light Street tower is currently under construction. M&T Bank confirmed it was in discussions to move its regional headquarters to the building, but nothing has been announced.
