Science + Technology Park at Johns Hopkins, John G. Rangos, Sr. Life Sciences Building L-1
This $83M, 277,000 sf building is the first of five state-of-the-art life sciences facilities for the East Baltimore Development Initiative (EBDI). The development of this new life sciences facility in East Baltimore, bordered by Madison Street, Ashland Avenue, and Wolfe Street, is the home to the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine’s Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences. This eight story, 277,000 s.f. building stands seven levels above grade with one level partially below grade. The project includes a pedestrian bridge connecting the new life sciences building to the existing Johns Hopkins Medical Center. The ground level features the lobby, retail space, mechanical spaces, life science support space and loading dock, and a mechanical penthouse is located on level seven. This laboratory building adopted “core and shell” construction for optimal flexibility for multiple tenants. To provide the developer with a workable schedule, the project was fast-tracked with the issue of packages for building foundations and structural frame.
