UNION CITY, CA-Axygen Scientific has purchased a warehouse manufacturing building newly built for its use by AMB Property Corp. Axygen paid $9.9 million for a 100,518-sf building with office in front and warehouse-manufacturing in back. The building is located on 5.7 acres at 33210 Central Ave. Axygen manufactures laboratory consumables for researchers in the pharmaceutical, biotech and academic communities worldwide. Axygen’s broker in the transaction, Jim Morris, a senior vice president with Colliers International in Oakland tells GlobeSt.com the property was carved out of a larger 15-acre site that AMB acquired from Crown Cork & Seal, which had a manufacturing plant on the property. The Crown Cork & Seal say vacant for about five years before AMB acquired the property with Axygen in its back pocket and demolished the structure. A little less than six acres was sliced off for Axygen’s building. The rest of the land was subdivided and built out with seven smaller speculative owner-user buildings concurrent with the Axygen project. Morris says two of the buildings have been sold and two are under contract.
