SAN DIEGO, May 9, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $27.4 million in financing for the acquisition and repositioning of 2065 Thibodo Rd., a 76,872-square-foot industrial building in Vista, California. The building will be repositioned for future life science use.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, a joint venture between Lincoln Property Company and Angelo Gordon, to secure the three-year, floating-rate loan through Citizens.

The new owner plans to convert the existing square footage, currently consisting of traditional R&D and manufacturing space, into manufacturing space that meets Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) for life science users. The property features 149 parking stalls, five grade level doors, 28’ clear heights and 8,000 AMPs of power.

2065 Thibodo Rd. is located on 4.1 acres in the North County submarket along the central I-78 Corridor of San Diego. The submarket is one of the most attractive for R&D and life sciences companies as it enjoys a diverse economy, strong talent pool, high quality of life and convenient access to the rest of San Diego County.

San Diego is home to over 1,300 life science companies employing nearly 64,000 people. San Diego has one fourth of California’s research institutes, captures over 60% of National Institute of Health (NIH) awarded projects and receives approximately 60% of NIH funding. Life science employers are attracted to the market due to several reasons, including the highly educated population, the #3 life sciences market in the U.S., a built-out eco-system of world-class companies and the highest concentration of defense personnel in the nation.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Senior Managing Directors Aldon Cole and Jordan Angel, Associate Daniel Pinkus and Analyst Auden Menke. Managing Director Joe Anderson arranged the sale from the previous owner and currently represents the borrower in their efforts to lease the building.

“This three-way partnership highlights continued momentum in San Diego’s life sciences market,” said Cole. “High quality and well-located opportunities in the life sciences sector continue to garner strong demand in the capital markets.”
