Today, Johns Hopkins University announced an exciting new chapter with the reveal of preliminary designs and an initiatory filing to the Commission of Fine Arts for new university facilities in the landmark DC location currently home to the Newseum.
The addition of the Pennsylvania Avenue building will allow the university to consolidate its growing downtown footprint into a central, state-of-the-art location for students, faculty, and the DC community at large. The new location will provide research and networking opportunities in the DC metro area for students based in the University’s flagship Baltimore campus. Originally opened in 2008, the building boasts over 400,000 square feet and unrivaled views of the Capitol. The renovation work for the facility—which will include the creation of new classrooms, research facilities, offices and spaces earmarked for community gatherings—could begin in Fall of 2020.
Our team is thrilled to help shepherd the process of creating this world-class academic center, serving as program manager to provide project management, cost and risk estimating, and schedule management for the duration of the renovation. We’re honored to continue our legacy of work within the academic sector in such an iconic space that is sure to impact those who enter its doors for years to come.
