CBRE ANNOUNCES GROUNDBREAKING OF ‘THE BOARDWALK’
CBRE recently announced the groundbreaking of The Boardwalk, a Class A lab and office campus in Torrey Pines, San Diego. Located at 10265, 10275 and 10285 Science Center Drive, The Boardwalk will feature three buildings that total more than 195,000 square feet. Amenities will include a gourmet café, conference center, 5,000-square-foot fitness center and a 1-acre park with outdoor meeting and collaboration spaces. The property is located just west of Interstate 5 and is within walking distance of University of California, San Diego.
CBRE’sJed Stirnkorb, Rich Danesi and Andrew Huggett are the leasing agents for the project. The landlord, Irvine, California-based REIT Healthpeak Properties, owns more than 25 million square feet of R&D and office buildings throughout the U.S.
“The Boardwalk is in the heart of great universities and many innovative companies that create a highly educated talent pool and opportunities for unique collaborations,” said Danesi. “Torrey Pines is the ideal location for such a state-of-the-art lab and office campus and the CBRE team is extremely excited for the opportunity to lease such an incredible asset.”
Healthpeak will commence construction on the $164 million life science development in January of 2020 and is expected to accommodate occupancy as early as the second quarter of 2021. The campus will combine three adjacent Healthpeak holdings, activating two land sites through 110,000 square feet of ground-up development that will flank both sides of an existing 85,000-square-foot property that will also be redeveloped.

PROMINENT LA JOLLA PLASTIC SURGEON RETIRES
Dr. Ervin Wheeler, a plastic surgeon at the La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre, will retire at the end of January 2020.
The first in his family to graduate from college, Dr. Wheeler studied at the University of Michigan Medical School before completing an internship at Stanford University and advancing to two residencies at the UCLA Medical Center. Dr. Wheeler always felt a calling to become a doctor, but it wasn’t until his internship at Stanford that he realized plastic surgery was the right path for him. He saw how plastic surgery can immediately improve people’s self-confidence and outlook on life and dedicated his career to providing the safest, most advanced plastic surgery procedures to his patients.
In addition to serving his patients, Dr. Wheeler traveled to Mexico several times a year as a volunteer with Interface, an organization of plastic and other reconstructive surgeons who give their time and expertise to offer reconstructive surgery to children in Mexico. For more than 34 years, Dr. Wheeler serves the poor by providing free plastic surgery services, such as cleft-lip and palate repair, burn scar reconstruction, and repair of other facial trauma.
