Mains, June 4th, 2024 – Mainz is one of the world’s most respected locations for biotechnology and life sciences. A new biotech campus is being built on an area in the immediate vicinity of Johannes Gutenberg University in the Rhineland-Palatinate state capital. Kadans Science Partner, an internationally active science park and network operator, has secured a plot of land there. Plus Ultra Mainz, a modern building complex that offers an optimal combination of research and office space, will be built directly at the entrance to the site.

In a prominent location on the new biotechnology campus, the multi-tenant building will have a gross floor area of over 19,000 square meters. As the heart of the building, the atrium provides access to meeting rooms, the catering area, and the rental space. Away from the shared areas, the floors can be freely designed – both as offices and as laboratories. Upon request, Kadans supports its customers in the tailor-made design of the rooms.

Inspiring Meeting Place for Work and Networking

In addition to the state-of-the-art infrastructure for working on promising projects, tenants benefit from the Europe-wide network that Kadans has built up. The international community consists of several science clusters and organizations in Europe and offers ideal conditions for exchange and cooperation. The complex is easily accessible from the entire Rhine-Main area for employees, guests, and visitors. The journey time to Frankfurt Airport is 30 minutes and there are also good public transport connections.

Strategic Partnership with Local Economic Development

Kadans has entered into a cooperation specifically for the Mainz location with the Life Science Center (LZM) Mainz, a state institution for the promotion of innovative technologies, the creation of qualified jobs, and the increase of the attractiveness of the Mainz location, particularly in the fields of life sciences and biotechnology. As part of this, the LZM will also relocate its location long-term to the new Plus Ultra Mainz on the biotech campus in Mainz. The partnership was already presented on January 29, 2024, at a joint press conference with Rhineland-Palatinate Prime Minister Malu Dreyer, Economics Minister Daniela Schmitt, Mainz Mayor Nino Haase, and the Kadans Management Board. Including the project in Mainz, Kadans is now active in 30 science clusters in Europe.

“The construction of Plus Ultra Mainz is an important starting point for our strategic expansion in Germany and underlines our ongoing commitment to innovation and scientific research,” explains Markus Scheja, Managing Director of Kadans Science Partner Germany GmbH. “The project provides the optimal framework to actively contribute to the growth of biotechnology in Mainz and to network and attract life science companies from all over the world,” adds Ilias Sarros, Senior Development Manager at Kadans.
