San Diego, CA – BioInnovation Labs, “BioLabs”, the leading developer and operator of life science coworking lab facilities for high-potential life-science start-ups in key biotech innovation clusters, today announced their new lab location at BioVista, described as the “Hub of Connectivity” for science companies in Sorrento Mesa. This reimagined campus will also provide ample outdoor gathering spaces and upcoming restaurant/café complete with celebrity chef.

“We are excited to start this new chapter in San Diego, a market that BioLabs has successfully operated since June 2016. The new facility at BioVista will allow us to more than double our space and offerings for entrepreneurs and create a new hub for life science start-ups in San Diego,” said Johannes Fruehauf, CEO at BioLabs.

BioLabs expects to open for residents at BioVista in early fall 2022 and will operate a temporary space in anticipation of opening on the top two floors in summer 2023. To build on the current BioLabs location, the team expects to welcome up to 35 high-performing science-based start-ups. BioLabs will offer fully permitted individual benches, a range of private labs, shared and private office spaces, and conference facilities. Residents will also have access to state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, dedicated expert lab support staff, a comprehensive procurement platform, events and programming, and access to a network of BioLabs sites in multiple domestic and international geographies.

“Longfellow is thrilled to welcome BioLabs to our San Diego portfolio,” said Nick Frasco, Chief Investment Officer West and Managing Director. “The BioLabs team’s unique approach to operating shared lab space that fosters innovation and growth for biotech startups aligns perfectly with Longfellow’s goal of creating comprehensive lab space ecosystems to serve our tenants across all stages and sizes.”
