Oakland – November 18, 2022 – CBRE announced the lease of 1410 Harbor Bay Parkway in Alameda, a 100,000 sq. ft. life science building at The Loop in Alameda, CA., to one of the Bay Area’s top publicly-traded biotech firms. The newly leased building is the largest of the six-building business park totaling approximately 332,000 sq. ft.

“The momentum at The Loop has fueled the growth of life sciences and STEM in Alameda. The Loop’s proximity to leading research institutions and Bay Area life science hubs allows tenants to draw on the region’s pool of talent across tech and life science sectors,” said Mike Raffetto of CBRE.

The Loop at Harbor Bay in Alameda is a six-building business park totaling approximately 332,000 sq. ft. Completed in 2021, The Loop is one of Alameda’s newest properties approved for life sciences, advanced manufacturing and STEM-related uses. Now 80% leased, there are just two remaining buildings available for lease at The Loop with speculative build-outs underway. Other tenants at the Loop include Azzur Cleanrooms on Demand and SentiBio, located adjacent to Penumbra and Abbott Diabetes.

“The Loop at the Harbor Bay Business Park in Alameda provides a community for lab/R&D and Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) tenants looking for space where they can put down roots with room to grow in the inner-Bay area. Invesco Real Estate and its local partner SRM are excited about this most recent lease and the spec projects underway as further evidence of the success of Harbor Bay Business Park as a thriving life science community,” said Shannon Aquino, Director,  Investment Management with Invesco Real Estate.

Demand for Class A life science facilities in the San Francisco Bay Area is among the highest in the nation, fueled by the growth of life science research talent and strong pipeline of venture capital funding, according to CBRE. In the third quarter of 2022, lab/R&D space in the Oakland submarket had the second lowest vacancy rate in the region (5.7%) and third highest average asking rent ($65.28).
