Although the firm is staying in downtown Baltimore (the firm's current HQ is at 100 East Pratt Street in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, about a mile away), the long-term lease details that the headquarters will include two newly built "green" buildings constructed to meet the firm's specific sustainability and collaborative needs. The relocation is set to take place in 2024, with Beatty Development Group serving as the developer and Armada Hoffler Properties as the general contractor.

, the firm had 7,635 employees as of September 30.) Their lease in Baltimore's Inner Harbor, which was renewed
back in 2013, goes through 2027.
When asked about the specific sustainable measures features of the planned HQ, Brian Lewbart, spokesperson for T. Rowe, wrote to MFWire
