BioMed Realty Signs New Lease With GlycoMimetics At Its Newly Redeveloped Center For Life Science | Shady Grove Campus In Rockville, Maryland

Biotechnology Company Leases 33,800 SF Following Its Successful IPO in January

ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BioMed Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: BMR) today announced the signing of a new lease with GlycoMimetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: GLYC) for one building comprising approximately 33,800 square feet at the Center for Life Science | Shady Grove in Rockville, Maryland.  GlycoMimetics is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the discovery and development of drugs to treat diseases based on an understanding of the role of carbohydrates in important biological processes, and the building at 9708 Medical Center Drive will serve as its new corporate headquarters. GlycoMimetics completed its initial public offering in January 2014 and has signed a partnership with Pfizer for a treatment for sickle cell disease which is about to begin Phase 3 trials.  

GlycoMimetics will be moving to the Center for Life Science | Shady Grove, a four building campus with approximately 214,700 square feet or laboratory and office space.  The campus is located along the I-270 Corridor in Montgomery County, also known as "DNA Alley," which supports several large-scale federal government health agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration, the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cancer Institute. The area is also home to several world-renowned universities and research institutes, including Johns Hopkins University, the University of Maryland and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

"We are pleased to be relocating and expanding our research and development capabilities at the newly redeveloped Center for Life Science | Shady Grove with our new real estate partner, BioMed Realty," said Rachel K. King, Chief Executive Officer of GlycoMimetics. "The campus is ideally located for us in the hub of life science innovation in Montgomery County. BioMed Realty's transformation of the site with leading-edge, adaptive and efficient laboratory and office spaces will support the research and development of our robust, diversified pipeline now and as we continue to grow in the future."

Kent Griffin, President of BioMed Realty, remarked, "We welcome GlycoMimetics to the Center for Life Science | Shady Grove and are honored that they chose BioMed Realty to provide the mission-critical real estate to advance their research and clinical candidates to fight sickle cell disease, cancer and infections. Their ongoing scientific advancements and recent success in capital raising, with their recent IPO and partnering with a global pharmaceutical leader like Pfizer, illustrate the extraordinary health of the life science industry in Maryland and throughout centers of innovation across the U.S."

BioMed Realty acquired the four buildings which now comprise the Center for Life Science | Shady Grove in May 2010 and commenced redeveloping three of the buildings in mid-2011, which was completed in early 2013. As part of the redevelopment effort, the campus now features a shared board room, a large, multi-purpose meeting area and a fully-equipped fitness center.
