Our more than 250,000 square feet of laboratory space includes the labs of principal investigators as well as high-tech core facilities available to all scientists. In the spring of 2020, a number of our teams will move into an additional 69,000 net usable square feet of space for labs, offices and support services in the nearby historic Lake Union Steam Plant building. We continue to invest in facilities, equipment and technology and plan for longer-term faculty growth.
For the past 25 years we have planned, built, expanded and operated our campus with a commitment to sustainable and efficient use of resources. Along the way, we’ve earned dozens of awards for environmental leadership. Energy conservation, recycling and composting, water conservation and sustainable transportation are embedded in everything we do.
Our campus sits in the heart of Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, a world-leading hub of innovation in tech and medical research. Our neighbors include Amazon, UW Medicine, the Allen Institute and the regional offices of Facebook and Google. South Lake Union is also home to biotech companies — many of them Fred Hutch spinouts — such as Celgene’s Juno Therapeutics, Adaptive Biotechnologies and NanoString. This thriving ecosystem is fertile ground for partnerships that accelerate and translate Fred Hutch discoveries.
