Protecs to develop 74,000 s.f. lab-office building in King of Prussia

Protecs Inc., a Plymouth Meeting company that has spent the last eight years converting offices into lab space for life science and tech firms, has set its sights on developing a new 74,000-square-foot building in Upper Merion. 

The new structure will be built on nearly six acres at 3700 Horizon Drive and connected to an existing 21,800-square-foot building that Protecs turned into lab and office space. While the building will initially be marketed as a built-to-suit, Christopher DiPaolo, president and founder of Protecs, is confident that the space will lease up to multiple tenants if one big one doesn’t come along. 

“We are seeing so much activity,” he said. “Throughout Covid, I’ve been busier with this than my other work.”

DiPaolo’s main line of business is a design and construction management firm that serves a variety of sectors but has a focus on pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device and other high-tech companies. He began Protec Innovation Centers as side business in 2012 after buying a building at 5100-5110 Campus Drive in Plymouth Meeting that once housed Genaera Corp., a now-defunct biotechnology company. 

DiPaolo renovated the space and began leasing it to early-stage life sciences firms and other technology-related businesses. It became apparent that he was filling a void in the market and on the vanguard of what has blossomed into a growing niche area of real estate. 

The cost of converting a building into R&D space is less than ground up development, which helps keep expenses down for these early stage companies. The space, which is ready for tenants to move in, also provides them with the ability to move in right away. Many companies he has recently been leasing to have been working on Covid research and therapies. 

There are a growing number of companies that have financing backing, want their own labs and equipment and need between 2,500 and 25,000 square feet of space but the supply is lacking, he said. “We target the gap,” DiPaolo said. 

For example, Iovance Biotherapeutics, which is having a new lab and manufacturing facility built for it at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, recently signed a lease on 3,000 square feet at 5110 Campus Drive.

Aside from Campus Drive in Plymouth Meeting and Horizon Drive in King of Prussia, Protecs also owns a 50,000-square-foot building at 512 Township Line Road in Blue Bell that is also been converted into one of its innovation centers. Between its three locations, the company has 120,000 square feet of office and lab space that will grow to roughly 200,000 square feet once the King of Prussia building is constructed. Rents range between $25 and $30 a square foot. 

Its existing space is nearly full with 16 companies and just about 7,000 square feet of vacant space, keeping DiPaolo on the lookout for additional acquisitions. 

At 512 Township Line, Protec recently leased 8,259 square feet to KorGene, a company that is developing targeted, molecular diagnostics, and is expanding. It also signed ThirdLaw Technologies to 4,808 square feet. It focuses on synthetic and computational chemistry, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and medical devices.

Fast-growing biotech firm takes King of Prussia space, plans 100 new jobs

WuXi Biologics has leased 33,000 square feet at the Discovery Labs in King of Prussia and expects to add 100 jobs by the end of this year.

The company took the King of Prussia space earlier this year and “plans to build a development lab to serve our local and global biotech and biopharma partners,” said Ruyi Shi, a WuXi Biologics spokeswoman, in an email. The company declined to elaborate, saying that no additional information was available at this time. 

On Glassdoor, LinkedIn and ZipRecruiter, WuXi Biologics has job postings for research associates, scientists, quality assurance specialists and other positions involving working in a lab in King of Prussia.

Discovery Labs is a 1.6-million-square-foot campus that includes 1 million square feet of former GlaxoSmithKline manufacturing and office space at 411 Swedeland Road in Upper Merion. Earlier this year, developer Brian O’Neillannounced he had teamed up with Deerfield Management Co. to launch the Center for Breakthrough Medicines in 680,000 square feet at Discovery Labs that would serve as a manufacturing facility for companies needing a place to outsource cell-and-gene therapy and other production. 

A representative from Discovery Labs declined to comment on WuXi Biologics taking space in the facility. 

WuXi Biologics started out in 2010 as a division of WuXi AppTec Co. Ltd., a Shanghai-based company that provides research and development and manufacturing services to pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies. WuXi AppTec has a significant presence in the region at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and is among the largest tenants at the South Philadelphia campus, occupying more than 380,000 square feet of space. The company employs more than 600 people at the Navy Yard.

The company recently completed a third $38 million, 95,000-square-foot office and laboratory building at 400 Rouse Blvd. for its advanced therapies business unit. 

WuXi Biologics was spun out of WuXi AppTec in 2015 and went public in 2017 on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. It initially started out providing cell development and other related services but then expanded into discovery, development, testing and manufacturing. It helps facilitate taking a concept through commercialization for the pharmaceutical industry. At the end of last year, the company had 250 drugs in pre-clinical development stage, early and late-phase development. 

The company has also said it plans to start construction on a new 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Worcester, Massachusetts, during the second quarter.

Purolite relocates headquarters to KoP

Purolite Corp. has relocated its headquarters to King of Prussia from its longtime home in Bala Cynwyd.

The company, which makes specialty resins used in the pharmaceutical and other industries, signed a 10-year lease on 12,500 square feet at 2201 Renaissance Blvd. Equus Capital Partners is the landlord and the company completed a move into the new office space this month. The company has 1,000 employees around the world but 40 in its headquarters.

Purolite had been in 9,700 square feet at 150 Monument Road, where it had grown in piecemeal fashion over the last 36 years. The move was prompted by a desire to be in contemporary space in an area that has access to amenities and the ability to attract employees from a wider geographic area.

“We wanted some place to fit where we are today,” said Jacob Brodie, vice president of the company that was started by his father and uncle. “We are an innovative tech and manufacturing company involved in the life science and pharmaceutical industries.”

In its search for a new headquarters, the company considered remaining in Bala Cynwyd but also explored buildings in King of Prussia, Conshohocken and Plymouth Meeting. “We were looking for a great space in a vibrant area,” Brodie said.

The building at 2201 Renaissance provided it with the ability to build out state-of-the-art space the way it wanted with more glass, collaboration areas, phone and huddle rooms and an expansive café. At its old office in Bala Cynwyd, the kitchen was so small it could accommodate only five people at a time, Brodie said.

Purolite also decided to use the move as an opportunity to brand the space to better reflect what it does and the company’s culture. 

The company also occupies 225,000-square-foot manufacturing facility at 3620 G St. in Philadelphia. It has been there since 1985 and has 100 employees that work from the building.

Brandywine Realty Trust Announces Plans for the Demolition and Visionary New Ground-Up Development of 650 Park Avenue in King of Prussia

Leading Commercial Real Estate Developer Strengthens Continued Investment in Thriving Economic Submarket

Brandywine Realty Trust (NYSE:BDN) announced plans for the demolition, and visionary ground up re-development, of 650 Park Avenue in King of Prussia. Upon completion, the sleek new workplace will feature an unmatched combination of contemporary architecture, efficient design, and premier visibility tailored to attract top tier talent and corporations to the burgeoning economic hub.

Brandywine Realty Trust enlisted Coscia Moos Architecture, a Philadelphia-based architectural design firm, to realize its vision for the new 650 Park Avenue, which will transform the property into a four-story, 100,000 square foot versatile workplace strategically designed to offer generously open floor plates and customizable layouts that can be tailored for single, or multi-tenant users.

“King of Prussia is among the most successful regional economic hubs in the nation,” said Jerry Sweeney, President & CEO of Brandywine Realty Trust. “650 Park Avenue boasts a premier location in the heart of King of Prussia, and to attract leading businesses and talent, we elected to reinvent the property to deliver a highly desirable asset that will rival the quality and appeal found in urban workplaces.”

To foster connected communities in the workplace, the completed 650 Park Avenue development will feature an abundance of open-air amenity spaces and communal work environments designed to promote team productivity, and individual wellness and leisure. A fourth-floor terrace will serve as a flexible activity space, ideal for a variety of events from morning yoga classes, to lunch meetings, and evening gatherings. The second and third floors of the property will feature private balconies, while amenity space on the east side of the building will be designed to accommodate group lunches, meetings, and gatherings with easy access to the first-of-its-kind 2.6-mile First Avenue Linear Park and trail, a new public recreational amenity that Brandywine will help deliver in collaboration with Upper Merion Township and King of Prussia District. Furthering Brandywine’s dedication to tenant wellness, 650 Park Avenue will also be WELL and Fitwel certified— designations that ensure Brandywine’s buildings are designed to positively impact and support a healthy lifestyle at work.

“Brandywine’s new office building will be a wonderful addition of King of Prussia, and the design beautifully complements the First Avenue Linear Park project, which is transforming underutilized, private lawns into a cohesive, active and beautiful public amenity,” said Eric Goldstein, Executive Director of King of Prussia District. “Brandywine’s investments continue to foster substantial economic growth and elevate KOP’s prominence in this Philadelphia submarket.”

With a desirable location adjacent to major suburban routes 422, 202, and I-76, and situated just off the Kind of Prussia Interchange of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, 650 Park Avenue boasts high visibility, and ease of access. Located just minutes away, tenants can enjoy the luxury shopping, vibrant dining, and entertainment experiences at the King of Prussia Mall and King of Prussia Town Center.

The investment and ground-up re-development of 650 Park Avenue follows the highly successful ground up development of 933 1st Avenue for single tenant, GeoBlue, and the complete reimagination of 500 N. Gulph, now home to CSL Behring. Brandywine remains bullish on delivering impactful and visionary developments that will further elevate the thriving King of Prussia market. Brandywine currently owns and operates 1 million rentable square feet across 12 properties, accounting for 14 percent of the office product in the market.

650 Park Avenue is expected to deliver in Q4 2020.

King of Prussia Apartment Projects Are Leading the Philadelphia Metro Area in Lease-Up Pace

Market Stat: Mixed-Use Amenities and Proximity to Suburban Office Parks Are Helping King of Prussia Apartment Developments Stand Out

Almost 2,000 new, luxury apartment units have delivered in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, just in the past two and a half years. While this rapid growth in high-end apartment options would cause apartment fundamentals to buckle in plenty of Philadelphia suburbs, tenant demand has been sufficient to match the new supply in King of Prussia, where new apartment deliveries are leasing up at the fastest rates of any projects throughout the Philadelphia metro area.

Three developments with more than 250 units delivered in King of Prussia last summer, including Hanover King of Prussia, Park Square and AVE King of Prussia.One year later, all three of these properties are more than 70% leased.

While large apartment properties that delivered in the Philadelphia metro area during the past two years have averaged 15 move-ins per month over the course of lease-up, within King of Prussia, it has been 30% faster, averaging just over 19 units per month.

Most of King of Prussia’s recent multifamily projects have delivered within the Village at Valley Forge masterplan development. The mixed-use and pedestrian friendly layout of Village at Valley Forge allows local residents to walk to the grocery store, as well as to local bars and restaurants.

These selling points are likely helping boost interest in King of Prussia’s new apartment stock, as there are very few pedestrian friendly enclaves in Philadelphia’s far western suburbs, which are dominated by major highways and sprawling office parks and shopping malls.

The Impact of Federal Tax Reform on State and Local Governments

President Trump and Congress are committed to undertaking comprehensive federal tax reform this year in order to create jobs and spur domestic investments in manufacturing and other industries. They will make adjustments during the transition period as federal tax reform measures take effect. It will entail the balancing of interests that may require interested parties to give a little in one area for the benefit in another area. The extent will not be known until a final tax bill is signed into law and the economic growth that is expected to result when such tax reform materializes.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Federal tax reform has the potential to dramatically impact revenues and fiscal burdens onto state and local governments.
  • Two suggested proposals: the elimination of tax-free public financing (bonds) and the federal deduction on state and local taxes make it harder for non-federal entities to raise capital for infrastructure.
  • Local and state government have a seat at the federal tax reform table: the implementation will be gradual and adjustments made as necessary to address fiscal gaps.

“Two suggested tax reform proposals with significant state and local implications are the elimination of tax-free public financing (bonds) and the federal deduction on state and local taxes.”
