The Science + Technology Park at Johns Hopkins1812 Ashland Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21205
Forest City and Johns Hopkins Medicine are developing the next phase of a state-of-the-art technology park, adjacent the main Hopkins Hospital Campus, which will serve as an anchor to a revitalized community in East Baltimore.
The project comprises a total of 88 acres, and represents a $1.5 billion urban re-development effort that combines commercial office, retail and residential development, complemented by a wealth of new community amenities. Among those amenities is a five acre green space called “Eager Park” at the front door to the new 1812 Ashland Building. The 1812 Ashland facility will provide incubator space for Hopkins’ Fast Forward program, as well as two floors of Biotech and Medical Research space. The 2,000 square foot retail space is proposed as a café, serving the needs of local residents, nearby workers, students, visitors and retailers.
A 194 room Marriott Residence Inn hotel with a casual dining restaurant and retail space has commenced construction, with a planned completion in Fall 2017.
Retail is an important component of the overall plan, and will total over 80,000 square feet at full build out. Existing retailers include: Walgreens, 7-Eleven, Harbor Bank and Atwaters Café. Opening in the Spring of 2016 will be Helmand Afghan restaurant and a tapas bar restaurant.
Immediate for Summer 2016 Opening
