Harley Davidson of Baltimore plans to relocate its riding academy to a bigger site at Tradepoint Atlantic, the industrial site in Baltimore County that for years held the Sparrows Point steel mill.
The firm has signed a long-term lease for "several" acres for the facility, which it expects to open in May 2016, Tradepoint Atlantic representatives said Tuesday.
Harley's dealership and store will remain on Pulaski Highway, but the group was looking to expand its riding center, said Ryan Burrows, a vice president of JLL Mid-Atlantic, which worked on the deal.
"We certainly have plenty of land to work with," Burrows said. "We were able to carve off a nice piece for them."
The riding academy, which opened in 2001, has trained an average of 800 students per year for the last five years, according to the news release.
The motorcycle group is the latest tenant announced for the 3,100-acre site, located south of Interstate 695. FedEx Ground also plans to open a distribution center there next year.
