Square Feet

Michael Armstrong, chairman of the JHM board of trustees, will give $20 million to the School of Medicine for a new education building. Tentatively planned to open by 2009, the building could be constructed on the site of the tennis courts next to the Cooley Center and adjacent to Reed Hall. Armstrong has already endowed a professorship in the Department of Medicine and contributed $4 million toward stem cell research.

House Keys 4 U

Johns Hopkins has long promoted homeownership in areas surrounding its various campuses. Now a new state initiative called House Keys 4 Employees promises to provide more funds to employees who are purchasing homes in selected neighborhoods.

Announced by Maryland Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. in front of the dome on Sept. 29, House Keys 4 Employees will enable eligible employees to receive up to $3,000 in matching funds in the form of a 0 percent deferred loan. That is in addition to what is already available through the state’s existing incentive programs and Live Near Your Work.

Through LNYW, full-time, benefits-eligible employees can receive $1,000 from Hopkins and $1,000 from Baltimore City when buying homes in target areas near the East Baltimore, Peabody Institute and Bayview campuses. Homebuyers purchasing in a new “Tier I” area near Homewood now can receive $3,000.

More than 130 employees have already benefited from Live Near Your Work, noted Ron Peterson, Health System president.

Info: “You Too Can Own a Home.” East Baltimore campus. Dec. 5, noon to 1 p.m. To register: Worklife, 443-287-7000.
