Cushman & Wakefield Selected to Lease Life Science Facility in Phoenix

February 14, 2022

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cushman & Wakefield (NYSE: CWK) has been engaged by Wexford Science & Technology, LLC to provide leasing services for its recently constructed life science and biolab facility, 850 Phoenix Biomedical Campus (PBC), in downtown Phoenix, Arizona.

The LEED Gold-certified 850 PBC is a 227,113-square-foot (SF), seven-story Class A building located at 850 N Fifth St and situated within the larger 30-acre PBC. Completed in late 2020, the building is 65% leased to multiple tenants and anchored by Arizona State University (ASU).

The entire fifth floor of the building will also feature a market-ready lab/incubator space known as Wexford Innovation Labs. Currently under construction, the specialized space is designed as a shared work environment for life science, biotech or other industry-related users from 100 to 15,000 SF. It will be available for occupancy in the third quarter of 2022.

The Cushman & Wakefield Leasing team is led by Alexandra Loye with Scott Boardman and Kristina Cutillo. Cushman & Wakefield also provides facility management for Wexford’s local and national portfolio. Wexford is managing and leasing the Wexford Innovation Labs.

“850 PBC is an innovative project offering an opportunity for both small and large life science tenants to cultivate new relationships, collaborate and thrive,” said Loye. “Already with a strong foundation in diagnostics and medical device, Phoenix is an emerging hub for life science and biotech. Cushman & Wakefield is thrilled to have been selected to represent this project, and in helping to further advance Phoenix’s future in an important sciences-driven sector.”

Maricopa Community Colleges’ CEI LabForce program, located on the first floor, provides onsite life science workforce development training. Furthermore, the building is designed with multiple open common areas for meetings and collaboration, an activated lobby, outdoor plazas, a variety of sitting areas, local art, a stage for events and a ground floor restaurant.

Loye added, “In addition to 850 PBC, Wexford’s development on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus will offer scalability, flexibility and growth opportunities for tenants up to approximately 2 million SF when all phases of development are completed.”
