Hundreds of people are planning to protest tonight against a city proposal to provide $107 million in tax increment financing to the Harbor Point development near Harbor East.
The protest will begin at 4 p.m. at City Hall before the 5 p.m. work session of the council's taxation committee, which could vote on the deal tonight.
Hundreds of clergy members, community activists and union workers plan to rally, according to a news release from the activists.
The Harbor Point development is the planned home of Exelon's new regional headquarters, a Morgan Stanley facility and other office buildings, residential towers, stores and a hotel.
Currently, the site is assessed at $10 million, but the Baltimore Development Corporation projects it would be valued at $1.8 billion for tax purposes when developer Michael S. Beatty completes it.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has said the Harbor Point project would create thousands of jobs. In addition to the tax increment financing, the development is benefiting from more than $100 million in tax breaks.
