Cheshire Lab Plan Grows
Bruntwood SciTech, the joint venture between leading property company Bruntwood and Legal & General Capital which owns Alderley Park, is to develop 50K SF of new laboratory space now, with a further 100K SF to come.
The £10M investment will see the extension of Alderley Park’s Mereside life science campus in Cheshire. The Park is already seeing a £160M investment by Bruntwood SciTech.
“We see strong demand for high quality space and have great confidence in what we can offer — world class facilities and competitive rates, all within the context of a deep talent pool, a well-functioning ecosystem, business support and a lifestyle offer that just works for people," Alderley Park Managing Director Chris Doherty said.
It comes soon after it was revealed that a new genomics campus will be created at Manchester Royal Infirmary following a deal with German specialist Qiagen. The city council-backed plan — which unlocks funding for the campus — will put Manchester in the leading position in the U.K. push into the genomics sector.
