What have you seen in the transformation in the last 20 years, specifically in the biohealth industry?

Well, it has matured. When I first started, it was mostly early-stage companies, one landlord, and maybe 20% of the footprint for existing lab buildings. And fast forward to where we are now, we’ve gone from maybe 3 million square feet to 10 million square feet along the I-270 corridor.

What do you see for the next year, or three to five years?

I still see some good M&A activity today and well into the future. Our researchers at JLL, they say that that’s a trend that’s going to continue into the future, because there has been a shift from big companies to small companies producing more products. I think they mentioned that 70% of all biopharma products are produced by companies with less than a billion in sales.
