Knight Cancer Research Building
District: South Waterfront
Acting owner: OHSU
Designer: SRG Partnership
Contractor: McCarthy Building Companies, Andersen Construction
Work continues on the Knight Cancer Research Building, going up in the South Waterfront north of Zidell Yards.
OHSU is a public entity and the KCRB is public sector work. The State of Oregon provided the funding for the building, and The Knight Foundation funding ($500,000,000) is going toward the research. Because the research was funded, the researchers needed a building to do the research in, and the state gave the money for the building. The KCRB is publicly funded and OHSU is acting as the owner.
The KCRB's total construction budget is $160 million. Completion is slated on time for July 2018, with lab move-in already scheduled for August.
