BioMed Realty, a Blackstone portfolio company and a provider of real estate solutions to the life science and technology industries, has secured approval for plans to deliver 600,000ft2 of purpose-built laboratory space in Cambridge, UK.

It will deliver the new laboratory space on the 15-acre Cambridge International Technology Park site, which was acquired in September last year.

To cater to the growing tenant demand in Cambridge, BioMed has a pipeline to deliver up to one million ft2 of further Class A space for life science companies.

BioMed Realty CEO Tim Schoen said: “BioMed remains committed to investing in the UK by providing the mission-critical space that is needed to bring life-saving products and therapies to market and ensure the UK’s future success as a global leader in drug development.

“Having engaged and worked closely with local stakeholders to bring our latest development forward, we can now deliver a scheme that will help advance Cambridge as a global home for research while supporting the local economy.”

BioMed’s new project is expected to create 2,700 jobs.
