University of Maryland, Baltimore, Breaks Ground on HOK-Designed Health Sciences Facility III
The University of Maryland, Baltimore, has broken ground on its largest building ever, a $205.4 million, 10-story, 428,970-square-foot biomedical research facility called the Health Sciences Facility (HSF) III.
University of Maryland President Jay A. Perman, MD, was joined by Gov. Martin O’Malley, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, University of Maryland School of Medicine Dean E. Albert Reece, MD, PhD, MBA, and several hundred invited guests at a groundbreaking ceremony Sept. 17 on the site of the new building.
“The University of Maryland, Baltimore, the University System of Maryland’s founding campus, has experienced robust growth in recent years,” said Dr. Perman. “The Health Sciences Facility III further strengthens our footprint in west Baltimore and, as a result, our economic impact on the city and the state. We’re privileged to be able to help revitalize our critically important Baltimore neighborhoods and the state of Maryland as a whole, and at the same time, enable biomedical research and education that has the potential to save lives.”
“What amazing work we expect to take place within the four walls of this building,” said Lt. Gov. Brown.
