1305 O'Brien Drive, Menlo Park
Life Science Re-Development

1305 O’Brien Drive is a 190,000 square foot re-development, scheduled for completion Q1 2017. The project is leased to Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (Nasdaq: PACB) to serve as its new headquarters. The repurposed building will house state-of-the art R&D facilities, feature a two-story lobby, exterior amenities space, and a conference center.



The project is representative of Tarlton’s innovative adaptive re-use strategies. The site was originally developed in 1986 as a state-of-art sales and distribution facility. It was in full operation through mid- 2014 when the underlying real estate became too valuable to serve as a warehouse location.

The original structure, with a clear 130,000 square foot floor plate, provides the ideal layout for today’s cutting edge life science work.

This coincides nicely with the area’s transformation as a life-science research center. Its redesign is projected to (again) serve its new purpose for decades into the future.

The exterior architecture is intended to be evocative of the industrial character of the surrounding neighborhood, featuring simple forms of concrete and steel. It shares a wealth of resources and amenities with Menlo Park Labs, our 1.3 million sf life-science community.
