Bioterra is Born

In April 2021, Longfellow acquired The Oberlin, a 4.14-acre office park and development site in Sorrento Mesa. A milestone in Longfellow’s commitment to building out the burgeoning biotech cluster in the Sorrento Mesa and Sorrento Valley submarkets, the new campus, designed by HOK Architects with McCarthy Building Companies, Inc. as the general contractor on the project, will consist of over 323,000 square feet in six stories.

The property will offer seamless indoor/outdoor architectural features and amenities that prioritize physical, mental and community health. A modern aesthetic with earth tones and natural materials, the building will feature wrap-around balconies and a beautiful rooftop patio overlooking Sorrento Mesa, with specially curated food and beverage options open to the public.

MiresBall brand agency in San Diego created the Bioterra logo taking inspiration from the building’s architecture, specifically the glassline windows and morphing them into the letter B. The brand’s warm and progressive personality is reflected through the combination of the color and design elements.

Consistent with Longfellow’s commitment to be a leader in delivering environmentally sustainable and socially responsible projects, Bioterra will be the first all-electric HVAC life science building in San Diego in addition to being designed to LEED Gold Certification and Fitwel Standards, resulting in strategically forward-thinking and ESG leading design.
