On Wednesday, October 14, LA Bioscience Hub brought together 30 real estate and bioscience professionals for our 2015 real estate tour of the LA Bioscience Corridor. The morning started off on the beautiful Grifols patio overlooking East LA. LABH Treasurer and Jones Lang LaSalle Vice President, Ben Stapleton, co-led the tour with us. The tour showcased five available properties in the LA Bioscience Corridor that are well-positioned for conversion into flex lab space, device manufacturing, and more. In addition, the tour stopped at the site of Cal State LA BioSpace, a bioscience incubator projected to break ground in 2017. On the Cal State LA campus, the tour heard about the future incubator from Dr. Howard Xu, Director of Programs and Innovation and the LABH Secretary.
The tour was a great success in facilitating connections and drawing more attention to the LA Bioscience Corridor as a place of opportunity and potential.
