Kevin Plank's Sagamore Development Co. can use land owned by a unit of the National Aquarium in Port Covington for a planned technology incubator nearby, under a new agreement.

The agreement grants Sagamore easements over the northern edge of a parcel owned by the Center for Aquatic Life and Conservation at 2400 Clarkson Street, a Sagamore spokesperson said Friday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

That land is to be used by the planned innovation center "for the purpose of parking, access, landscaping and construction," the spokesperson said.

The center is being built in a 130,000-square-foot former garage at 101 W. Dickman Street and will retain the City Garage name.

Sagamore has amassed at least 148 acres in Port Covington and is planning a mixed-use development and new campus for Under Armour, the sports apparel company founded by Plank. Some work already has begun, including the conversion of a former Sam's Club into Under Armour offices and a new rye whiskey distillery called Sagamore Spirit.

Sagamore also acquired 43 acres in Westport, across the Middle Branch of the Patapsco River from Port Covington, at a bankruptcy auction earlier this year.
