Baltimore's population just went up by one!

I've officially returned as of today. Best time to go to the DMV - the day afer a snow storm when the schools are on delayed opening. Helps even more to go to a rural (Hagerstown) office. IN and OUT.

You'd think a $1,000 cake would taste sumptuous! Somebody call Duncan Heinz!

What ever it is, I think it will be an improvement over the old one which I really didn't care for all that much. I hope it has a big cornice and that the entire structure is made of BRICK!

Hopkins tops R&D spending list again
Baltimore Business Journal - 12:55 PM EST Monday, February 26, 2007

Johns Hopkins University led all United States academic institutions for the 27th straight year in research and development spending, with $1.44 billion spent on science, medicine and engineering, according to rankings from the National Science Foundation. The university also ranked first in federally-funded research and development, spending $1.28 billion on projects with the National Institutes of Health, NASA, the Department of Defense and the National Science Foundation.

Hopkins has continuously remained at the top of the list since 1979, when the National Science Foundation started to include spending from the school's Applied Physics Laboratory into the total. Since then, the school has continued to raise the bar -- becoming the first institution to cross the billion dollar threshold in both areas of spending during the 2002 fiscal year. No other school has surpassed the $1 billion mark.

Hopkins funding has gone to everything from stem cell research to cell engineering to robotics. "The ultimate goal of all the scientific, medical and engineering research done here at Johns Hopkins is not only to increase knowledge, but also to make lasting, meaningful contributions to humankind through innovation and discovery," said Hopkins President William R. Brody, in a statement.

The University of Michigan was second in total research and development spending at $808 million, and the University of Washington ranked second in federally-funded spending at $606 million. The University of Wisconsin-Madison was behind Michigan with $798 million. University of California, Los Angeles, and the University of California, San Francisco rounded out the top five.

10 Inner Harbor

If the building is going to be larger, I would hope it will be taller. Residential and Hotels rarely have large floor plates, one reason is people want windows. The lot is also confined so I doubt it will increase the floor plate size. I would hope for a 65 floor tower. Now that would be nice topping out at 800 Feet.

Like a mentioned before, the height might stay similar, but the parking could go underground, thereby increasing usable space, but not height. I don't know whether below-grade space like parking is factored into FAR or not.

I seriously doubt it will go underground for one huge reason. MONEY. If I am not mistaken the gallery at Habrplace garage cost 65 million to build becasue it is underground. That was years ago. Going underground at sea level if very expensive. They will have to build a seawall. Not worth the money for parking.
The casons alone will probaly have to be well over 200 feet deep for the tower.
The harbor court condo next door had to go down 175 feet for the casons for a 370 foot tower.

Certainly JHU's proximity to NIH, NASA Goddard, DoD, and other federal establishments hasn't helped them at all in raising all this money to spend in Baltimore....couldn't be.

Well, they're doing it for the 4S/LM, it seems! And that's a much shorter building! So, who knows! The bigger the building, the less of a burden it becomes proportionally.

I doubt those are the reasons. The fact that Johns Hopkins is the most efficient institution in the United States would qualify it to be the largest beneficiary to federal funding. Unlike those other research institutions JHU is located in many states including DC and many countries around the globe, so it makes sense that the world's most trusted research and medical institution would rank so high every year.

BTW, Welcome home Wada Guy!!

Right...location has nothing to do with it.
How are you quantifying efficiency btw? Wouldn't the fact that its located in countries besides the US dissuade the federal government from giving them money?
