Yale buys Bayer complex to expand research

Yale University is buying the Bayer HealthCare complex to house an expansion of its medical and scientific research programs, the university announced today.

The purchase, whose price was not disclosed, includes 550,000 square feet of lab space as well as offices and warehouses on a 136-acre campus that straddles the West Haven and Orange, Conn., border. The property off Interstate 95 has 17 buildings, including one for the former Bayer division Miles Laboratories and a chemical research facility used to develop drugs to treat cancer, diabetes and obesity.

"Yale is already in the midst of a boom in the expansion of its science and medical facilities," Yale President Richard C. Levin said in a statement. "The availability of Bayer’s science laboratories will enable us to undertake research programs that we would not have had space to develop for a decade or more."

Closer to home, Harvard University is making its own major expansion in the sciences, including a new science-focused campus that will be built on land it owns in Allston.
