Cushman & Wakefield Represents Tenant and Landlord in 96,000-SF Office/Life Sciences Headquarters Lease in San Diego

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 22, 2021-- Cushman & Wakefield (NYSE: CWK) announced that DermTech, Inc., a leader in precision dermatology, has leased approximately 96,000 square feet of Class A space at the Del Mar Corporate Centre (DMCC) for its new corporate headquarters in Del Mar Heights (San Diego), California. The building will also be the site of the company’s laboratory (the “DermTech Gene Lab”) where DermTech will among other things, process its DermTech Melanoma Test to aid in the early detection of melanoma.

Owned by Kilroy Realty, DMCC is a three-building, Class A campus featuring well-appointed design, beautiful common areas and outdoor lounges, and a prime, prominent presence. DMCC is surrounded by world-class shopping and dining, and is near many of San Diego’s top neighborhoods. The campus also has excellent visibility and accessibility from Interstate 5.

Cushman & Wakefield’s David Odmark represented DermTech and Cushman & Wakefield’s Brett Ward, Brian Starck and Michael Cassolato represented Kilroy Realty in the transaction.

DermTech’s new headquarters will be located at 12340 El Camino Real and will undergo a significant transformation that will include conversion of office space to life sciences laboratory space.

"We are very excited to welcome and accommodate DermTech in Kilroy’s portfolio. DermTech’s decision to locate its new headquarters in Del Mar Heights is a move that we believe will be the first of many life sciences companies to cluster in the submarket," said Ward, Executive Managing Director. “This transaction also reflects Kilroy’s ability to quickly and successfully convert property in order to meet the needs of today’s life sciences and biotech companies. A trend we anticipate will continue growing in the area given San Diego’s lack of supply and its position as one of the world’s premier life sciences hubs.”
