Marcus Partners Secures Full Lease at Life Science Campus in Boston

Ginkgo Bioworks has agreed to occupy 100 percent of Marcus Partners’ new life science campus at Parcels O and P in the Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park. The organism company is committed to the entire 228,000-square-foot campus in the South Boston Waterfront neighborhood.

At Parcel O, Marcus Partners is planning a new state-of-the-art 219,000-square-foot life science building. An adaptive reuse of an existing steel manufacturing building at Parcel P will serve as a 9,000-square-foot amenity building.

“Ginkgo Bioworks is committed to growth, and we are pleased to help create a home for them to continue to expand while remaining grounded in this neighborhood,” said Marcus Partners principal Patrick Sousa. “The developing South Boston Waterfront cluster is creating an exciting ecosystem of life science innovators.”

John Carroll, Evan Gallagher and Curtis Cole of Colliers represented Marcus Partners. Anne Columbia and Patrick Downey of Columbia Group Realty Advisors, Inc., represented Ginkgo Bioworks.
