Trammell Crow Company and Principal Real Estate Investors have announced plans for Jefferson Technology Park, a 500,000-square-foot life science campus in Frederick, Maryland.
The campus will include two 100,000-square-foot laboratory, research, and biodiscovery buildings, connected by a 10,000-square-foot amenity hub, and two 145,000-square-foot clean-room production buildings.
Construction will begin in September and completion is anticipated for late 2023.
This best-in-class campus will include R&D laboratory space capable of meeting the full spectrum of Bio Safety Levels (BSL) categorical designations, along with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) clean-room production space. The campus will feature a comprehensive offering of on-campus amenities intended to create a one-of-a-kind user experience, enjoyed by employees, their families, and visitors.
Jefferson Tech Park will be the premier biodiscovery campus in Frederick, promoting integrated research and biomanufacturing in one dynamic setting, said Trammell Crow in a statement.
“Jefferson Technology Park has been envisioned as a comprehensive life science campus that can deliver state-of-the-art laboratory and clean-room production space to the I-270 marketplace,” said Eric Fischer, Managing Director with TCC’s MidAtlantic office. “The campus will feature a comprehensive set of on-site amenities intended to create a best-in-class experience for employees and visitors. Once complete, Jefferson Technology Park will be the premier life science campus in the area, allowing for integrated research and manufacturing in one dynamic setting.”
“Jefferson Technology Park is a unique life science campus development opportunity that will further reinforce Frederick as the northern anchor of the I-270 Life Sciences Corridor. Jefferson Tech will be an exciting addition to the market, and we are looking forward to continuing our strong joint venture partnership with Trammell Crow to deliver this project,” said Rob Klinkner, Managing Director of the eastern states region for Principal Real Estate Investors.
Situated at the intersection of I-270 and I-70, the site is at the northern end of Maryland’s DNA Alley and part of the 2,000,000 sf Frederick life science cluster. Proximate to Fort Detrick and the National Cancer Institute, as well as numerous private sector companies, Jefferson Technology Park will build upon the existing life science ecosystem to allow for continued and rapid growth of the life science industry in Frederick, MD.
