3 Life Science Tenants Sign Leases at Keystone’s The Curtis
Clinical-stage biotechnology firm Imvax Inc. has extended and expanded its lease with Keystone Property Group at The Curtis, formerly the headquarters of Curtis Publishing in Philadelphia.
Imvax, which already utilizes 15,699 square feet at The Curtis, will add 21,066 square feet of manufacturing space. “Our new labs and offices at The Curtis are being built from the ground up for innovation, with great design flexibility that we owe to the building’s wide spaces and rigid floors,” said Vivodyne CEO Andrei Georgescu.
Tim Conrey of Scheer Partners represented Imvax and Lisa Berger Baskin, also of Scheer Partners, represented Keystone as the landlord.
Keystone also announced the addition of two other life sciences tenants at The Curtis. They include Vivodyne, which will move from its academic lab at the University of Pennsylvania to a 6,320-square-foot commercial setting; and Applied Genetic Technologies Corporation.
