Knight Cancer Research Building Site Plan
Sited next to the Collaborative Life Sciences Building & Skourtes Tower on the OHSU Schnitzer Campus, the $160 million Knight Cancer Research Building houses research programs focused on early cancer detection. The 7-story, 332,000 sf building includes state-of-the-art research and lab spaces, offices, a conference center, cafés and street-level retail space over underground parking. Mayer/Reed designed the site as part of an integrated project delivery (IPD) team. The site design features entry plazas, streetscape, an extension of the pedestrian promenade, and an ecoroof. A sixth floor roof terrace extends the social gathering space of the adjacent “intellectual lounge” and captures stunning views to the east. The building is targeting LEED Platinum certification for sustainability.
