NexCore Science & Tech and HATCHspaces acquired a general warehouse space in June 2022 which has been transformed into a specialized and purpose-built life science asset. As the first post-incubation life science facility in Orange County, HATCHlabs @ Irvine Spectrum delivered with eight (8) second-floor HATCHx turnkey acceleration labs across 20,952 SF, in addition to 18,230 SF of customizable and fully pre-leased HATCHlabs space on the ground floor.
Science-focused infrastructure and design-forward spaces will continue to optimize recruitment and retain top talent across both floors of the building. The facility features a two-story lobby with high-end finishes, exposed wood-beam ceilings, concrete floors, glass roll-up doors, abundant parking, outdoor community spaces, conference rooms, shower room, mother’s room, redundant fiber capacity and distribution, and shared breakrooms. Specialized infrastructure includes heavy power upgrades, sub-metered for cost efficiencies and segmented for continuity within the labs, distributed backup power, water and sewer distribution for multi-tenant uses, high-capacity air handling systems allowing for filtration and balancing, shared lab amenity space, and fully fit out lab casework across the second floor.
HATCHlabs @ Irvine Spectrum offers unparalleled access to a deep and talented science and manufacturing labor pool, world-class universities and incubation programs focused on the sciences, convenient proximity to the San Diego and growing Los Angeles life science clusters, and adjacency to three major research and clinical hospitals clustered at the Irvine Medical and Science Complex one-mile away. As evidenced by leasing velocity, the market has enthusiastically welcomed HATCHlabs @ Irvine Spectrum.
