First designs to be shown for East Balto. Community School

Preliminary designs for the East Baltimore Community School will be presented at two Architecture Open Houses this week: from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at the school’s temporary location (1101 N. Wolfe St.) and from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 21, in the Armstrong Building on the JHMI East Baltimore campus.

The school, which is run by Johns Hopkins and Morgan State University, is scheduled to open in August 2013 on a seven-acre campus just north of the Johns Hopkins campus.

The $30 million 90,000-square-foot EBCS will be the first new school built in East Baltimore in 25 years. It will share the campus with a $10 million 28,000-square-foot early childhood center.

The school will have a capacity of 540 and the early childhood center, 180.
