Healthpeak Properties has started construction on a new life science property in San Diego. The property, known as Sorrento Gateway, is a 163,000-square-foot class-A life science property in Sorrento Mesa. This is Healthpeak’s third ground-up development in the market since 2020.

The development is reflective of the strong demand for life science space in San Diego and specifically in the Sorrento Mesa submarket. San Diego is one of the top three life science markets in the country with more than 20 million square feet of inventory and more than a dozen research institutes and universities that help to attract billions in capital investment to the market. Life science employment is double the national average at 13.5%. The industry provides $33 billion in economic impact and has provided the county with nearly 50,000 jobs.
