Baltimore Business Journal: Designs for UMd. BioPark tower will now include above-ground garage
October 10, 2019
Designs for a 10-story office and laboratory tower planned for west of the University of Maryland BioPark have changed slightly, and now include a 300-space parking garage.
Developer Wexford Science + Technology presented a revision to the $200 million project — which also included a redesigned patio area and other minor tweaks — to a city design panel Thursday. The Urban Design and Architecture Advisory Panel (UDAAP) was generally pleased with the changes, but pushed the project's design team to look more closely at a car drop-off area that will later serve as the entrance to a second tower, planned as part of phase two of the BioPark expansion.
The project, located on a two-acre parcel at the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and West Baltimore Street, is designed to fill a void between the existing BioPark campus and the University of Maryland, Baltimore. It is expected to bring 1,000 new jobs, according to Gregory Herlong, director of development for Wexford.
