Sales activity for the San Diego biotechnology cluster has totaled nearly $1.5 billion since 2010

  • ​The primary hub for most of San Diego’s biotech companies is located in the submarkets of Torrey Pines, UTC, Sorrento Mesa, and Sorrento Valley. 

  • There are three major landlords/developers owning the lion’s share for life science/biotechnology real estate: Alexandria Real Estate, Biomed Realty, and HCP, owning a combined total of nine million square feet.

  • Since 2010, the San Diego central biotech cluster has had 25 transactions totaling a sales volume of about $1.4 billion (4.4 million square feet).
