Life Science CRE Looks To East Bay

Since Genentech planted its flag in South San Francisco in 1976, the city has remained the epicenter of the Bay Area life science industry.

The biotech behemoth is now the largest of over 200 biotech companies in South San Francisco, which contains over 11.5M SF and counting of biotech space, according to the city website.

BioMed Realty is well into construction of its 1.4M SF Gateway of Pacific development, with the 479K SF first phase already leased to AbbVie. Phase 3 Real Estate Partners’ recently opened the 21-floor north tower of its 715K SF Genesis project. Kilroy Realty Corp. is beginning construction on 630K SF across three buildings at Oyster Point, the San Francisco Business Times reports.
