Cardin, U.S. Representatives Chris Van Hollen and Donna Edwards, Montgomery County Council President Nancy Floreen, National Cancer Institute Director Dr. Harold Varmus, Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels, General Services Administration (GSA) officials, representatives from The JBG Companies and other officials to mark the start of construction on a new, $200 million satellite campus at the Shady Grove Life Sciences Center for 2,100 employees of the National Cancer Institute.

The JBG Companies was selected to develop the complex as twin, seven-story buildings with a parking garage and shops on nine acres overlooking a large pond. JBG will register with the U.S. Green Building Council, and will pursue LEED Gold certification. A transit stop on the future Corridor Cities Transitway will connect to the Shady Grove Metro station, which will be critical to the success of this transit-oriented project.
