Sterling Bay, the owner of 5785 Oberlin in San Diego’s Sorrento Mesa submarket, has announced that proteomic technology company Encodia has signed a long-term lease for approximately 66,000 square feet. 

“5785 Oberlin offers modern scientific facilities, collaboration space and outdoor amenities that meet the needs of today’s workforce,” said Rodney Richardson, Managing Principal at Sterling Bay. “Our entire team looks forward to working with Encodia and supporting life-sciences technology development in San Diego and across the country.”
