San Mateo, CA (May 21, 2024) – Longfellow Real Estate Partners, one of the largest privately owned investors and developers of life science real estate, reaffirmed its support of the life science industry throughout the Bay Area and Peninsula region with  the delivery of its San Mateo Science Center campus.

Acquired by Longfellow in 2021, the two buildings located at 901 and 951 Mariners Island Boulevard consist of over 260,000 square feet of creatable Class A lab and office space that will aim to serve a wide range of life science and biotech companies.

The San Mateo Science Center campus benefits from a highly accessible location in the heart of the mid-Peninsula. Situated at the intersection of the 101 and 92 freeways, the property offers a direct connection to the East Bay via the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge interchange and access to Foster City commuter shuttles servicing the Hillsdale Caltrain and Millbrae BART Stations. With its optimized Mid-Peninsula location, the campus will draw talent from throughout the Bay Area to utilize these newly developed lab and amenity spaces.

Construction on the campus upgrades commenced in the middle of last year, with major deliverables such as the first round of move-in ready lab suites and campus amenities that will support future customers. In addition to these spaces, Longfellow is delivering several lab suites ranging from 9,000-22,000+ SF in Q3 2024, with other opportunities for further growth or built-to-suit space within the building.

Physical onsite amenities include a café, collaborative lounge and conference spaces, outdoor patio area, expanded fitness center with showers and lockers, indoor bicycle storage, EV charging stations, and much more. To complement the built-in amenities, Longfellow will also implement its proprietary hospitality platform, ElevateTM, to create custom programming and events throughout the year that are highly curated for the partners utilizing the campus. Programming is set to include rotating food trucks, volunteer / philanthropic opportunities, and other collaborative group events intended to bring businesses and the community together.

“Throughout our Bay Area portfolio, we’ve been able to make meaningful enhancements in the developments and communities we invest in, something our entire team is proud to be a part of,” said Tara Korlipara, Director of Development & Market Lead. “The Peninsula has long been a magnet for the world’s foremost scientific research & development, and we are excited to expand our offering of world-class space to these visionaries.”

Longfellow is a premier investor, operator, and developer of life science real estate throughout the United States and United Kingdom with a total investment and development portfolio of more than 16 million square feet and over $10bn in total asset value. Locally, Longfellow’s Bay Area staff is headquartered in Redwood City and the firm has developments throughout the region in cities such as Palo Alto, Millbrae, San Francisco, Redwood City, and San Mateo.
