A Space for Innovation in Torrey Pines

At Hughes Marino we are always on the lookout for special, new spaces to meet our clients’ unique needs. Recently I had the opportunity to get a closer look at one that’s currently under construction — one of the most innovative and gutsy remodels that Torrey Pines has seen in years.

Alexandria Real Estate has begun a massive renovation on the original Titan Corp. headquarters office building at 3033 Science Park Rd (corner of North Torrey Pines Road and Science Center Road). They are tearing off the outside of the 110,000 SF building, and redesigning it from the inside out as part of a new campus. Another older building on the site will be torn down in order to build a 65,000 SF science and research building.

The end result will be a beautiful, world class corporate campus designed exclusively for the needs of life science innovators, of which we have so many in San Diego. Alexandria is investing millions of dollars to construct this premier science and research facility, taking an old, functionally obsolete building and creating something truly wonderful.

We expect the new campus to be a boon to Torrey Pines and the biotech firms who will make their homes there. Hats off to Alexandria for making this substantial investment in San Diego.
