Project Feature: Vantage

Located on the corner of Forbes Boulevard and Allerton Avenue in the heart of South San Francisco, the initial phase of Vantage consists of two purpose-built life science buildings (Building A and Building B) totaling approximately 343,000 square feet, in addition to a high-end 30,000 square foot amenity center complemented with ample outdoor meeting and community space.  The building's shape, exterior glazing color, and reflectivity are based on the concept of crystalline structures. Utilizing an integrated design approach and designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.


Japan-based Astellas Pharma has leased space in Building A. Astellas Pharma discovers, develops, manufactures, and commercializes a wide range of pharmaceuticals. The company’s product portfolio comprises marketed products for the treatment of a wide range of urological diseases, infectious diseases, cancer, nephrology, and metabolic diseases, immunodeficiency diseases, and transplantation. This building will include a gene therapies unit, cancer therapies developer, and room for business developments as well as its Rx+ accelerator for startups.
