Neighborhood Spotlight Series
NYC’s West End Labs: The Next Major Life Science and Innovation Hub


May 29, 2024 • 8:00am to 11:00am


WEST END LABS
125 West End Ave. New York, NY 

New York City’s West End Neighborhood has played a major role in establishing New York City as a global leader in life sciences. With the announcement of West End Labs, the Hudson Research Center, and several new developments along Eleventh Avenue, the West End subscluster has catapulted in prominence.

With proximity to some of the city’s most iconic arts and cultural institutions like Lincoln Center and Beacon Center, quick access to transportation, and several nearby parks, piers, retail and top culinary hot spots, the West End neighborhood has become a desirable home for leading STEAM organizations.

Join Builds Bio+ at the launch of our Neighborhood Spotlight Series as we convene the community’s most prominent life science tenants to hear about the neighborhood amenities that are solidifying West End as a critical subcluster within NYC’s expanding ecosystem.
