ScanlanKemperBard (SKB) signed a new 110,000-square-foot lease agreement with Twist Bioscience Corporation at ParkWorks Industry Center in Wilsonville. The deal with the synthetic biology and genomics company is the first executed lease since SKB’s acquisition of the property in April 2020.
SKB’s Todd Gooding says, “We have spent the last two years putting ourselves in a position to grow the life science community in the Portland Metro Area and we hope this transaction elevates Portland’s profile as a life science market.”
SKB is continuing to implement a comprehensive capital improvement plan at the property, which includes adding grade and dock-high loading docks, opening ceiling clear heights to nearly 20 feet, constructing additional storefronts, renovating the courtyard and adding parking throughout.
Hughes Marino and Cresa represented the tenant. Kidder Mathews represented the landlord. The property is owned by PW Venture Portland Limited Partnership, of which SKB is the general partner.
