PRESIDENT, WELLER DEVELOPMENT
Marc Weller is the president and founding partner of Weller Development. Before opening his current company, Weller, who has more than 20 years of expe-rience in real estate development, founded Sagamore Development Co. with Under Armour founder Kevin Plank.
Weller’s most well-known projects include the recent development of the Sagamore Pendry Baltimore hotel in Fells Point and the revitalization of Port Coving-ton, a 235-acre, $5.5 billion redevelopment project that’s been called one of the largest development projects worldwide. When complete, the area will offer 18 million square feet of development for shops, restaurants, and residences, 40 acres of parks and green spaces, and 2 1/2 miles of restored waterfront.
Economic impact studies suggest the project will support thousands of jobs and generate billions for the city.
“I could not get to work fast enough. … I am passionate about this project because I know what it will mean for the future of Baltimore, the state of Maryland, and the entire region,” Weller told The Daily Record. “This project will be truly transformational in nature.”
Weller also serves as a board member for the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation and Foundation Housing and sponsors youth football teams in Baltimore and Wash-ington. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Johnson & Wales.
Previously, Weller founded and operated Ellis Denning Construction and Development, which built thousands of residential units in Washington and surround-ing suburbs as well as a variety of mixed-use projects.
