Life Sciences on the Rise: Raleigh-Durham

Kristine Smith • 6/28/2021
Life sciences companies are drawn to Raleigh-Durham because of the robust talent pool available from the market’s three Tier 1 research universities. In addition to education, low cost of living and geographic advantages makes RDU a global leader in life sciences and biotechnology.

The market has traditionally been suburban focused for life sciences occupiers. A new trend is emerging, drawing lab users to downtown. In recent years, downtown Durham has developed pockets of urban lab options largely fueled by the demand of Duke University. That anchor demand has allowed other nonaffiliated anchored lab spaces to succeed in the Central Business District.

Users of life sciences space continued to grow despite the tempered demand for office space over the last year. With low supply, there is a rush for developers/owners to step into the life sciences space to provide more options. It is too soon to tell if developers who have not worked in this sector previously can break into this highly-specialized industry.
