In 2003 Capstone partnered with Johns Hopkins University to co-develop the Charles Village mixed-use facility at Johns Hopkins University, adjacent to its main undergraduate campus in Baltimore, MD. The program is comprised of 618 beds of undergraduate student housing over 25,000 SF of living-learning and academic support spaces, a 24,000 SF state-of-the-art dining and conference commons, a 23,000 SF Barnes & Noble bookstore, and an additional 3,000 SF of retail space for a Hopkins related credit union. This mixed-use facility is comprised of two mid-rise elements spanning an alley with a sky bridge connector. The architecture is traditional Georgian to reflect the Hopkins vernacular, with high quality brick and pre-cast exterior skin, and a poured-in-place masonry structure. Charles Commons was completed in 2006 and in 2007 it was named Student Housing Project of the Year.
