Biotech Firm Rubi Inks Lease at Alameda Innovation Campus
Rubi Laboratories, a California-based biotechnology company, leased 16,884 square feet at 1501 Harbor Bay Pkwy. within the Radius @ Harbor Bay campus, a nearly 700,000-square-foot life science and innovation campus located in Alameda.
Newmark managing director Conor Ranahan represented the ownership group, Paceline Investors and True North Management Group, while Newmark executive managing director Daniel Pivnick and managing director Ari Rokeach represented Rubi Laboratories. Newmark previously represented the ownership group in a full-building lease to Vivani last December at the same campus.
“Paceline and True North remain invested in building out high-quality, customized lab spaces that are incredibly valuable to tenants,” said Ranahan. “Rubi’s early engagement with the building allowed them to influence the design process and tailor the space to their needs as the company continues to further its research.”
The Radius is situated within Harbor Bay’s growing life science cluster anchored by Abbott Laboratories, Exelixis and Penumbra.
