David Cordish, president of The Cordish Companies, which operates Power Plant Live!, said the venue will open by spring 2014. Tin Roof has 11 locations across the U.S., including Indianapolis, IN; Charlotte, NC; and Birmingham, AL. The restaurants serve menu items like Southern-style sandwiches, pizza and quesadillas.
“They were our first choice,” Cordish said in an interview Monday. “They are a perfect fit.”
Tin Roof’s arrival in Baltimore marks its first lease in a Cordish project. Typically, the company’s projects across the U.S. feature some of the same tenants.
Tin Roof will join other Power Plant Live! tenants like Rams Head Live! and Howl at the Moon that feature live music. Power Plant Live!’s plaza is also a popular hangout in the summer for free concerts.
