Life science real estate is a burgeoning specialty industry that focuses on the growing demand for innovation and research space for medical, technology and educational institutions. The BioMed/BioTech/Bio Sport are industries that are at the forefront of life science real estate. Life science hubs are truly a local and global partnership between municipalities, universities and medical centers that naturally evolves as new firms are inventing new ways of combating disease and improving life through research and development.
As a direct result of the inner-city Boston BioTech Incubator that Dr. Philip Hart Developed BiDilwas created. In the African-American Heart Failure Trial (A-HeFT), a double-blind study of 1050 African American patients who had class III or class IV heart failure, BiDilwas found to reduce the rate of death by 43% and risk of hospitalization by 39% vs placebo when added to standard heart failure therapy. Shaquille O’Neil has signed on to help bring awareness to the issue and created the Shaq BiDilaccess program to make it available to everyone.

BioSports is defined as the space where sports meets BioMed and BioTech. The vision ofthe BioSports platform is to create a platform where educators, inventors, doctors, retired players, current players, stadium/arena owners and facilities operators, rehab professionals, trainers, and IT professionals can meet and collaborate from their own unique disciplines and create new cutting edge ideas that foster change, improve safety and performance (ie create safer helmets for concussion prevention), save energy, reduce carbon footprint, etc.

The business development opportunities for BioMedl BioTechl BioSport facilities throughout California and United States are numerous. Compared with Massachusetts, Southern California’s biomedical industry is relatively young with over half of its companies started in the past fifteen years.

Despite the youth of the industry in Southern California, the future is bright as numerous economists and political leaders see biotechnology as a key growth engine for the 21 st Century. The key factors for a successful BioMed/BioTech/BioSport campus are the presence of resources to partners with like research institutions, medical schools and hospitals, and major universities.

Understanding the demand drivers for space in the BioMed/BioTech/Bio Sport industries is not unique to BioMed Group, however that understanding coupled with the real estate industry expertise and strategic connections of our executive team provide us with a unique market opportunity.
