Spec-Built Bioscience 5 Will Cater to Life Sciences

Fitzsimons Innovation Community recently broke ground on a new cell and gene therapy manufacturing building at the 125-acre science and technology campus in Aurora, CO. Bioscience 5 will provide 90,000 square feet of flexible space designed to cater to life sciences.

Bioscience 5 will be built speculatively and can accommodate a range of functions: lab, office, distribution, manufacturing, assembly and warehouse space. Construction is expected to be complete in second quarter 2022.

Erik Abrahamson, David Saad, Blake Holcomb and Brian Hutt with CBRE were awarded the leasing assignment for the campus.

“The pandemic spotlighted the role life sciences companies play in protecting and advancing the health and well-being of society. Communities like Denver and Aurora with quality of life, highly educated workforce and expanding lab inventory, are poised to benefit from significant growth in the life sciences sector in the coming years,” said Saad.

CBRE’s 2021 MidYear U.S. Life Sciences report named Denver-Boulder a top U.S. life sciences market.
