Gold Standard: Applying Best Practices in Olympic Development to a Baltimore Bid
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this project is to present the case for the development of an Olympic Park and Athlete’s Village along the Middle Branch of Baltimore’s Patapsco River. By applying best practices observed through the assessment of the last 20 years’ Summer Olympic host cities, a plan is put forth to serve as a sample concept for Olympic development that enhances economic impacts and mitigates social costs. This project aims to serve as a resource for practitioners considering an Olympic bid generally, and to offer a compelling vision for a future Baltimore Olympic bid more specifically. The paper is designed around the following research question: What are current and best practices in Olympic development as they pertain to the Olympic Park and Athletes Village, and how might these principles be used for the development of Baltimore’s Middle Branch as the cornerstone of a Baltimore Olympic bid?
