The Alexandria Story

Lighthouse of AlexandriaAlexandria began as a garage startup with a vision to create a new kind of real estate company uniquely focused on serving the life science industry. 

We named the company after Alexandria, Egypt, the scientific capital of the ancient world, renowned for its iconic lighthouse whose beacon today still evokes the noble pursuit of scientific advancement and revolutionary discoveries. 

Over the last 25 years, we have established ourselves as the leader in owning, operating, and developing collaborative and dynamic life science, technology, and agtech campuses in key urban innovation cluster locations.
