Conceived by Wareham Development as a distinguished building for noble and Nobel scientists, EmeryStation East has become the acknowledged center of clean energy and anchors the EmeryStation campus to the east while providing much-needed life, physical and nano sciences, greentech and biofuel research space for the East Bay Biotech Corridor. The glass-clad 245,000-sq.ft. laboratory building with a 22,000 square-foot central landscaped plaza with fountains and sculptures, pedestrian walkways, and terraces is home to the following stellar tenant group:
The Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI); Amyris Biotechnologies; Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceutical; Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL); KineMed; and Berkeley Lights. Four co-gen units that produce part of the power needed by EmeryStation East have a reduced carbon footprint relative to PG&E power that is the equivalent of taking 719 cars off the road annually. EmeryStation East won an AIA Citation for Architecture in 2009.
EmeryStation East is LEED Silver certified.
