Development of New Cutting-Edge Campus Designed to Support Groundbreaking Science in High-Demand Market

On May 4th, BioMed Realty, the leading provider of real estate solutions to the life science community, is breaking ground on the first phase of Gateway of Pacific, a new 1.3 million square foot state-of-the-art laboratory and office development. This South San Francisco landmark development is planned as a three-building campus, plus amenities center, and allows for expansion of the vibrant research community in the heart of the Bay Area, one of the biggest ecosystems of premier science institutions in the world.

BioMed Realty will begin construction on this premier facility that will focus on providing adaptive building designs to support the ongoing growth and dynamic business needs of companies conducting breakthrough science and research. Flexible floorplates allow for seamless integration of laboratory and office space.

The campus will include amenities such as food and dining, sports and recreation, outdoor and indoor meeting areas, dedicated outdoor environments and ample underground parking to allow those on campus to collaborate, work and access lifestyle amenities, all within easy walking distance. The development is located on the most visible corner of South San Francisco, “The Birthplace of Biotechnology.” Unparalleled proximity to major highways and public transportation will further reinforce Gateway of Pacific as a flexible and stimulating work environment in a highly sustainable setting.

Phase 1 of the campus will consist of 500,000 square feet of office and laboratory space and a 50,000-square-foot amenity center, both of which are slated for completion by the end of 2018.This spec building not only provides the flexibility and customization demanded by the growing biotech industry, but it also further validates San Francisco as a global leader in life science research, development and commercialization.

In addition to Gateway of Pacific, BioMed Realty’s South San Francisco portfolio includes Science Center at Oyster Point, adjacent to the Gateway of Pacific site and featuring an architecturally distinct Class “A+” quality building design, which is fully leased to ThermoFisher Scientific.
