Phase 2 site

The current vision for building two in the second phase of the Knight Campus evolution is for a 175,000-square-foot, multi-story bioengineering and applied science research building to support additional research programs and facilities. The building is the centerpiece of the $225 million building project, slated for two acres along Riverfront Research Parkway. Phase two is made possible by a recently announced second $500 million gift from Penny and Phil Knight for the campus bearing their names.

The design reveal for building two is due in late spring/early summer of 2022. Construction is anticipated to start in 2023. Occupancy is currently expected in summer 2025.
