Mortenson Partners to Deliver Innovation Campus
The scale alone makes the Fitzsimons Innovation Campus one of the most significant developments of its kind in Colorado. But just as important as the size of the campus, is the plan, which applies the best concepts from successful medical research parks across the country to its own unique opportunity. The campus is designed to offer an unrivaled range of opportunity to life science research and development companies of all sorts, from small start-ups to established industry leaders. It’s a place where the best and brightest are coming together to take ideas from benchtop to bedside; a place that will continue to honor the name “Fitzsimons” with bioscience, health and research successes in years to come.
Offering 118,000 gross square feet, this three-story project will provide innovative space for wet and dry labs, office suites, warehousing, and distribution. The Bioscience 3 building offers life science and bioscience clients flexible space for mixed-use purposes.
There is a 100-seat flexible auditorium and shared conference space and a ground level designed to accommodate distribution and/or warehouse functions. The space will also include the capacity for liquid nitrogen, compressed air vacuum, and standby electrical generators, as needed.
The property will also include a parking structure to accommodate 200 cars, resulting in a total of 410 parking spaces. The structure will be expandable to approximately 400 spaces, if needed.
The contract is develop-design-build. Mortenson Development is developer and Mortenson Construction is the design-builder. Additionally, Mortenson will provide leasing services for the space.
