Lieber Institute Newest Tenant at Johns Hopkins Bio Site

The Lieber Institute for Brain Development is the newest tenant at Johns Hopkins University's East Baltimore, Maryland Science + Technology Park, according to the Baltimore Business Journal. The neuroscience research institute will lease 30,000 square feet at the site and hire 60 employees over the next few years. It also retains the option to lease an additional 46,000 square feet.

"The expectation is this will be the permanent location for the Lieber Institute," said Scott Levitan, senior vice president for Forest City, the site developer.

The Institute trumped the University of Pennsylvania, Yale, and Columbia for the space. It will research schizophrenia and partner with the Bethesda, Maryland-based National Institutes of Health and National Institute of Mental Health.

The Institute's move puts the complex's occupancy at nearly 80 percent of capacity. The developer will extend $2 million to the Institute for its build-out.
