Baltimore engineering firm RK&K plans to move to the Inner Harbor next summer, consolidating its three existing offices in the city.
The firm is set to occupy 116,000 square feet on the fifth and sixth floors of the Candler Building at 111 Market Place, said Mark M. Dumler, a partner at the firm. The move will fill some of the empty space triggered by energy giant Exelon's relocation to Harbor Point.
RK&K, founded in 1923, has more than 1,000 employees. About 460 will report from the new Baltimore headquarters, which offers room for growth and provides a central location for employees commuting from all over the region, Dumler said.
The firm is selling its 81 Mosher Street building to the Maryland Institute College of Art, said Dumler, who declined to disclose the terms. It also currently leases space in the Baltimore Sun garage on Calvert Street and in the Candler building.
The garage building, which is owned by a former partner of The Baltimore Sun, is also on the market.
