BALTIMORE-Work has gotten under way on Johns Hopkins University’s second cancer research facility on its East Baltimore medical campus. The new 270,000-sf structure, an $80 million project to be called Cancer Research Building II, will be a twin production of the first research structure that is now known as the Bunting-Blaustein Building. Clark Construction Group Inc. and Smoot Construction have joined forces as Clark/Smoot to spearhead the actual construction of the project. HDR Architecture is behind the design of CRB II, just as it was with the Blunting-Blaustein building.

CRB II will sit on Orleans St. next to the Blunting-Blaustein facility, which cost an estimated $60 million to develop four years ago. The new facility will be connected to its sister structure via a connector building enclosing a new loading dock and additional shared lab functions. Clark’s Elizabeth Tuico tells GlobeSt.com that the development endeavor is a two-year project and that approximately 110,000 sf of the 270,000-sf building will consist of lab space, while the remaining space will be dedicated to offices and mechanical space.

“It will put different disciplines together in the same building,” says John E. Grinnalds, senior director of facilities management for the JHU School of Medicine. “It creates an opportunity for greater collaboration between the department of oncology and other departments in the school doing cancer-related research.” CRB II will not be the last structure to go up on the campus. The new building is just one facet of the university’s $1 billion expansion plan for the next ten years.
