Discovery Labs in King of Prussia is being touted by its developers as the largest co-working facility for sciences and technology in the world, writes Queen Muse for the Philadelphia Magazine.
The impressive new campus sits on more than 200 acres of land and can accommodate 3,000 workers. It is being developed by real estate investor MLP Ventures in the former GlaxoSmithKline R&D facility.
Renovations are expected to be finalized in approximately a year.
However, the existing infrastructure is already welcoming companies that can customize a few smaller labs or an entire building and start working.
All 12 buildings at the campus are connected by interior glass walkways to allow for easy collaboration. There are also outdoor atriums with seating under tree canopies, perfect for a lunch break.
The campus also has an on-site helipad.
“Having a helipad and being 20 minutes away from an international airport is important for specimen transfers and samples that need to be moved quickly,” said The Discovery Labs chief financial officer Audrey Greenberg.
Many other amenities include a 250-seat auditorium with stadium seating, a restaurant-like venue, and a fitness center.
