After nearly 20 years on Seattle's First Hill, IDRI has moved to the South Lake Union neighborhood, joining the growing global health/life sciences hub in that area. We're occupying approximately 55,000 square feet, primarily on the 4th floor of the building, located at 1616 Eastlake Avenue East.
The majority of the space contains general laboratories, as well as specialized facilities including a GMP manufacturing suite, rooms for drug discovery robotics and IDRI's new Human Immune Monitoring Center. By re-utilizing materials and office space configurations from the previous tenant, IDRI saved more than $1 million in its build-out, which was put toward developing state-of-the art labs. The space allows IDRI's staff and scientists, who were previously spread across three floors of a two-building complex, to consolidate almost all activities on one floor.
The space was also designed with the public in mind, featuring interactive tour stops throughout the lab space that use technology to underscore IDRI's work in developing vaccines, drugs and diagnostics, as well as large built-in windows to showcase IDRI's specialized facilities, including manufacturing. There is also a flexible meeting space, where IDRI can host educational events for up to 100 people.
