Ryan’s 60-acre Woodbury Lakes business park was the perfect fit for the corporate headquarters of Kindeva Drug Delivery—a leading global supplier of development driven pharmaceutical delivery solutions. In addition to providing them with the ideal 12-acre parcel adjacent to the I-94 corridor, we also offered the precise set of services they needed: infrastructure development, capital markets, architecture + engineering, and extensive clean room and high-finish industrial construction expertise. The project also represented a major win for the City of Woodbury, which is focused on diversifying the community’s employment and tax base.
Given the intensive technical requirements and the impact of COVID-19 on the financial environment, the project required an unusually complex capitalization structure, while the location—former farmland—needed extensive offsite improvements, including utilities and roadworks, all on a tight timeline. Meanwhile, our architecture + engineering team moved forward with the rigorous process of determining objectives and defining the stringent laboratory requirements, with state of-the-art controls pertaining to such factors as air quality, dust particles, humidity levels and temperatures.
The handsome 137,897-SF, two-story headquarters—with capacity for downstream expansion—will serve the needs of Kindeva’s corporate leadership and critical support functions, while promoting collaboration among more than 200 scientists, engaging in research, development and clean manufacturing.
