Beckman Coulter Leases New Facility Near Los Angeles

NEW YORK, April 21 (GenomeWeb News) - Beckman Coulter is one of the new tenants in a newly constructed office park in southern California, according to local news reports.

The 138-acre ChinoSouthBusinessPark, developed by Oltmans Construction Co. and Carson Co., comprises a 182,000-square-feet lease and a 137,000-square-foot lease.

The building that will house Beckman Coulter is located in Chino, west of Los Angeles, and is a "concrete tilt-up structure" designed by RGA Architects of Irvine, Calif., according to GlobeSt.com. Beckman is headquartered in Fullerton, located southwest of Chino.

 

The website quoted Matt Vanderhorst, president of the Carson Cos., as saying that Beckman Coulter leased the new facility. The size or duration of Beckman's lease was not immediately known. Calls to Beckman Coulter were not immediately returned.

When completed, the ChinoSouthBusinessParkwill have 2.5 million square feet of real estate, and "is designed for major distribution operations as well as companies that require extensive and sophisticated tenant improvements," the website reported. It added that Fischer Scientific is currently an occupant with a 162,000 square-foot lease.
