Children's National Health System broke ground in late November of 2018 on the Research and Innovation Campus in Washington. The project includes the renovation of four existing buildings located on 12 acres on the former Walter Reed Medical Center Campus. A 333,000-sf research and innovation facility will provide 158,000 sf of laboratory space for the study of pediatric genomics and precision medicine. The project will include a business incubator and 175,000 of shell space to accommodate future growth. Completion is expected in 2020. A comprehensive outpatient care center will offer adolescent and pediatric primary care as well as housing the Rare Disease Institute. Other buildings will include a 300-seat conference venue and a 960-space parking garage. The project team includes Elkus Manfredi Architects, Array Architects, MEP/FP engineer BR+A, and Suffolk Construction.
