Bayer Campus

A Campus Master Plan, Site Design Guidelines, and numerous individual building projects have been developed in support of the original 30-year Development Agreement between Bayer, Inc. and the City of Berkeley for Bayer’s 45-acre urban infill biotech/industrial production facility and laboratory. West Berkeley’s Street grid, landscape, and urban development pattern extends through the secure campus, physically integrating the industrial campus with the surrounding neighborhoods.  The internal campus site plan features an extensive landscaped pedestrian network separated from the industrial and service requirements.  A new 30-year Development Agreement has now been negotiated to expand the campus pedestrian landscape while re-arranging the future building areas and functions to reflect the biotech technological changes, Bayer’s production priorities, and an expanded workforce.  Incremental developments over the years have gradually built a richly textured and handsomely planted campus landscape framework into which the new buildings are seamlessly integrated.
