Over the past year, Facility Logix has worked closely with Johns Hopkins’ Fast Forward Incubator program in planning, designing and project managing this crucial project for Baltimore, MD – at 1812 Ashland. Congratulations to the entire construction and project team, the community leaders and community citizens, and Johns Hopkins!

A $65 million building was dedicated Monday afternoon at the East Baltimore Development Inc. project that will include a business incubator, research space and a Starbucks job training site.

Known as 1812 Ashland Avenue, the building is expected to be occupied in early 2017 with a 30,000-square-foot expansion of Johns Hopkins University’s FastForward business incubator, 40,000-square-feet of medical research laboratory space including JH Genomics, the gene sequencing lab. On the ground floor, one of six new ” Starbucks Opportunity Cafes” in the U.S. will soon open as part of a new concept by the java giant to teach job and workforce skills to inner city youth.
