Innolabs: A Vision Realized
King Street Properties’ life sciences complex in Long Island City, Innolabs, is coming to completion.
A direct response to LifeSci NYC, a $500M, 10-year plan to invest in New York City’s life sciences community, the completion of Innolabs will
mark a milestone in the city’s plan to keep life sciences talent, capital, and institutional connections within the five boroughs. Led by Pavarini McGovern, this monumental repositioning involved converting and expanding an existing 161,266sf, Class B office building into 244,692sf of Class A life sciences space.
Ultimately, the team replaced and reinforced the structural system, combined three existing buildings, expanded with two new additions, and built out four additional stories, all primarily constructed with reinforced concrete and some structural steel. The new layout allows for multi-tenant floors, making Innolabs a best-in-class purpose-built lab building in New York City.
Ground Floor: planned 15,000sf vivarium
Floor 1: amenity space
Floor 2-5: 185,000sf of leased space
