The Janus Property Company completed its newest purpose-built lab space at the Mink Building at 1361 Amsterdam Ave. in West Harlem’s Manhattanville Factory District. The 11,000-square-foot, turnkey commercial bioscience lab features a chemical fume hood, vacuum system, gas generator for freezers and an autoclave pressure chamber.
The Mink Building was once home to the Bernheimer and Schwartz Pilsner Brewing Company, and later the Interborough Fur Storage Company. Janus has enhanced the building’s historic facade, while upgrading the interior for life science, technology and office use.
“This lab, with its state-of-the-art outfitting, is a strategic enabler for another innovative life science company to join the creative and life sciences corridor connecting Columbia University and City College,” said Janus principal Scott Metzner.
He added that the master-planned Manhattanville Factory District “offers tenants access to a world-class talent pool and creative neighborhood energy, as well as a range of convenient commuting options.”
