Johns Hopkins students will be able to have coffee in “The Factory” and listen to open-air concerts beneath the “Conversation Cube” when they visit the next major building on the Homewood campus.

Those are nicknames for parts of the planned Stavros Niarchos Foundation Agora Institute, an interdisciplinary center targeted for completion in 2022.

Two Mount Vernon redevelopment projects are moving ahead after Baltimore’s preservation commission this week approved designs that will significantly alter a prominent block of N. Charles Street.

Landmark Partners won approval for its plan to build an eight-story office building called City House Charles in place of the Grand Central nightclub at 1001-1003 N. Charles Street. Developers say they have already identified tenants for 100 percent of the office portion.

And Agora Inc. was permitted to transform the former Hynson, Westcott and Dunning building at 1030 N. Charles St., to a new hub for its growing workforce. It will be the 13th building renovated by Agora along the Charles Street corridor, which has become a virtual campus for its employees.
