San Diego / San Francisco, CA (February 22, 2024) – Longfellow Real Estate Partners, one of the largest privately owned investors and developers of life science real estate, today announced the expansion of regional leadership in the key West Coast markets of San Diego and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Newly announced leadership includes Peter Fritz as Regional Managing Director in San Diego and Tara Korlipara as Director of Development and Market Lead in the San Francisco Bay Area. Each of these regional leads will enter elevated and expanded roles after excelling in their previous positions at Longfellow.

As Managing Director, San Diego, Peter Fritz will work with Longfellow’s leadership team to set and execute the strategy for continued growth and operations in the San Diego region. In his new role, Peter will serve as the regional office leader and expand relationships with local life science and industry partners as well as key local government and community stakeholders. In this role, he will also be responsible for ensuring that Longfellow tenants continue to experience state-of-the-art lab space and a world-class experience in San Diego.

Peter previously held the role of Senior Director, Development where he oversaw Longfellow’s ground-up development projects, collaborating with teams across the portfolio. Prior to joining Longfellow, Peter was a Vice President at Project Management Advisors Inc. where he managed the delivery of over 2 million square feet of life science, commercial office, and retail development.

In her new role as Director of Development & Market Lead in the Bay Area, Tara Korlipara will work closely with the regional team and executive team to advance regional developments, pursue new opportunities, and support and oversee Longfellow’s nearly 5 million square foot pipeline in the region.

As she continues to expand her work with Longfellow’s vertically integrated departments, Tara will build and maintain new and existing relationships with key tenants, community leaders, and stakeholders throughout the firm’s Bay Area portfolio which includes developments in Palo Alto, Redwood City, Millbrae, Emeryville, San Mateo, and San Francisco’s Mission Bay.

Peter and Tara have stepped into their new roles after local leader Nick Frasco was elevated to Partner, West Region with Longfellow in late 2023 where he is now responsible for oversight and strategic growth throughout the Western United States.

“We are proud to announce the expanded roles of Peter and Tara in our key West Coast regions,” said Nick Frasco, Partner, West Region. “They have shown incredible leadership and collaboration with our internal team and the communities we partner with. I’m looking forward to the great things each will accomplish in their new roles as Longfellow continues to provide best-in-class space for our tenants throughout our portfolio.”

Longfellow is a long-term 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 16.5 million square feet and over $10bn in total asset value.
