Wareham Development announces third new lease at EmeryStation West
Zogenix, Inc. joins Dynavax and Profusa at Wareham's newest research-oriented building
Zogenix, Inc., a long existing tenant of Wareham Development, will move its current 22,000 SF Emeryville headquarters at Wareham's EmeryStation I building into its new 37,000 SF office on 5th floor at EmeryStation West. Zogenix, Inc. is a pharmaceutical company committed to developing and commercializing CNS therapies that address specific clinical needs for people living with orphan and other CNS disorders who need innovative treatment alternatives to improve their daily functioning.
"We are delighted to welcome the Zogenix team to EmeryStation West and gratified that our relationship with them continues at our EmeryStation campus," says Wareham partner Geoffrey B. Sears.
Wareham Development and Zogenix represented themselves in the deal.
The world class addition to Wareham's highly-successful 2-million SF EmeryStation research and tech campus was designed to meet LEED Gold standards. Its seven levels of laboratory and office space sit above a two-story transit center and 125-car parking podium.
The construction team, led by Perkins + Will, one of the preeminent firms specializing in the design of laboratories and office for the life science and tech sectors, included Nova Partners, DPR Construction, Rutherford + Chekene, and Interface Engineering.
The new East Bay/Transbay transit center at the street level will serve Amtrak's Capitol Corridor commuter route from Sacramento to San Jose. Bus bays allow passengers to hop off the train and access last-mile transit options including AC Transit to the new San Francisco Transbay facility or elsewhere, to the free EmeryGoRound shuttle to BART and around Emeryville, or to taxis, limos, car and bike shares.
