Following two years of construction, Alexandria Real Estate Equities has completed work on its new headquarters building in Pasadena. 

Located at the southeast corner of Union Street and Euclid Avenue, the five-story, 82,000-square-foot office complex replaced a surface parking lot.  A four-level subterranean parking garage sits below the building.

Gensler and Rios Clementi Hale Studios designed the headquarters, which has a sleek, modern exterior.  Off-set floor plates rising through the structure are used to create outdoor terrace decks at its second, fourth, and fifth floors.

DPR Construction served as the project's general contractor.

ARE, which is already headquartered out of Pasadena, invests in life sciences and technologies companies in the United States.  The real estate investment trust purchased a 76,000-square-foot campus in Culver City earlier this year for $39 million.
