LOWER GWYNEDD — CBRE has been retained as the exclusive leasing agent for Spring House Innovation Park (SHIP), a 133-acre multi-tenant life sciences campus located along the Pennsylvania Turnpike Corridor at 727 Norristown Road in Spring House, Lower Gwynedd Township, Montgomery County.

The property is owned by MRA Group, an experienced life sciences developer based in Horsham, and Beacon Capital Partners, a leading real estate investor, developer and manager.

As part of their new partnership, MRA Group and Beacon have committed to expanding the vision of this life sciences campus by investing significant capital into new on-campus amenities and upgraded state-of-the-art lab facilities. Spring House Innovation Park currently has various lease availabilities, most notably +/-94,200-square-feet of lab space in Building 14 (Q1 2022 delivery), +/- 75,000-square-feet of lab space in Building 2 (Q4 2021 delivery) and +/-26,000-square-feet of lab space in Building 5 (Q4 2021 delivery). Additionally, the campus has future lab facilities and build-to-suit opportunities.

A CBRE team of Paul Touhey, Matthew Knowles, Cody Lehrer and Anthony Pell will spearhead the marketing and leasing campaign on behalf of ownership.

”Spring House Innovation Park is the premier life sciences campus in the Philadelphia suburbs and CBRE is excited to partner with MRA Group and Beacon to take an already spectacular development to even higher levels,” Touhey said in a press release.
