Mission Bay Life Science Campus

Posted by Alex Gault on March 10, 2006

Alexandria Real Estate Equities has just secured the first tenant for the 2.1 million square foot Mission Bay life science campus the firm plans to complete by 2013.

Sirna Therapeutics is moving its headquarters to 1700 Owens St., the first building Alexandria is constructing. The 155,000-square-foot building is expected to be completed later this year, and Sirna will occupy nearly 40,000 square feet. Sirna focuses on developing therapeutics for a wide range of diseases using RNA interference technology.

Alexandria plans to sign up a life science cluster of tenants within the building — including venture capital firms with a focus on biotechnology, other R&D-focused companies, and academic research programs. The complex abuts two important nonprofit research centers: the David Gladstone Institute and the California Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Research.
