New LuminUltra Headquarters at BWI Tech Park


Applied molecular diagnostics company LuminUltra has signed a lease with St. John Properties for 14,000 square feet at 805 Pinnacle Drive in Linthicum, Maryland. The Canadian company will move its U.S. headquarters to the new facility located in BWI Tech Park – a 156-acre business campus that encompasses more than 1 million square feet of commercial real estate in Maryland, including offices, spaces flexible, R&D and retail.

Lacey Johannson negotiated on behalf of the landlord, while MacKenzie commercial real estate brokers Mark Deering and Drew White represented the tenant.

Previously, LuminUltra’s staff and resources were split between two locations – one at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, as well as another smaller office space at BWI Tech Park. The new space will allow the company to consolidate its technology development and distribution divisions. LuminUltra plans to use the premises to carry out research, development and logistics activities. It will also serve as the main hub for all of the company’s North American activities.

“We are excited to bring these two critical areas of our business together under one roof,” said Pat Whalen, President and CEO of LuminUltra. “The opening of this new facility at Pinnacle Drive brings together two of our most critical departments and will foster even more innovation and collaboration as we strive to continue to meet our customers’ needs and help solve challenges. microbiological conditions with which they are confronted.”

The 805 Pinnacle Drive property was custom built to increase the efficiency and productivity of the business at its new location. The property includes a premier clean room and dry room for research involving freeze-dried products; a cold room to work in areas such as protein purification; and equipment design and engineering capabilities.

“We pride ourselves on developing innovative buildings for innovative tenants,” said Matt Lenihan, senior vice president of leasing for St. John Properties. “805 Pinnacle Drive earned LEED® Gold certification from the US Green Building Council for its sustainability features, and the building’s flexible design allowed LuminUltra to create the precise configuration for their needs.”

Along with recent upgrades to its Enterprise Resource Planning, the company has also focused on accelerating its workflow and product delivery to customers around the world. To that end, BWI Tech Park’s proximity to BWI Airport, as well as its access to major cargo routes and highways, will play a major role in the company’s efforts to meet customer needs.
