An outcome of master planning efforts conducted by Ayers Saint Gross for the Johns Hopkins Health System, the former Children’s Medical Surgical Center (CMSC) building was determined to be an underutilized building in the heart of the clinical core of the medical campus. To address this and other campus needs, the existing CMSC building is being redeveloped with an additional wing to repurpose the building from clinical use to research use.
Redevelopment includes a new high-performance exterior envelope for the entire building, along with infrastructure upgrades to support world-class research for the School of Medicine. The additional wing doubles the site capacity and unifies interdepartmental research, providing a building with seamless connections to the clinical core and facilitating stronger “bench to bed” connections. In addition to providing much needed clinical research space and an enhanced materials handling facility to service the northwest quadrant for the clinical core, the CMSC Renovation and North Tower Addition creates a new visual presence for Johns Hopkins Hospital and the School of Medicine on the northwest side of campus.
Johns Hopkins Hospital is planning a $400 million addition and renovation of the Children’s Medical and Surgical Center on its East Baltimore campus to accommodate more laboratory and research space.
