BioCT plans to move into new 101 College building in New Haven

BioCT, which serves as the voice for Connecticut’s bioscience industry, announced this week it plans to move into the new 101 College St. building in New Haven by February.

Jodie Gillon, president and CEO of BioCT, said the building appealed to the organization because of its state-of-the-art event space.

BioCT manages two incubators, one in Groton and one in New Haven, with the latter at the John B. Pierce Laboratory on Congress Avenue. BioCT currently has no office space.

In addition to supporting life sciences companies, BioCT provides lobbying, mentoring and educational services.

Gillon said 101 College St. will have event space to accommodate between 10 and 400 people, and access to these spaces will enable more programming.

She noted it also puts BioCT in close proximity to collaborators, such as Yale Ventures, Arvinas, BioLabs New Haven and Alexion Pharmaceuticals, which are also planning to occupy space there.

BioCT said that having this headquarters in New Haven will be a “game-changer for the organization, providing even more opportunities for collaboration and programming.”

Developer Carter Winstanley, principal of Winstanley Enterprises, said Thursday that construction on the 101 College building will be complete this fall, with the first tenants moving in sometime after Jan. 1.

Winstanley, who also developed the neighboring bioscience tower at 100 College, has been appointed to BioCT’s board of directors. BioCT indicated that Winstanley has helped transform New Haven into a “cornerstone” of the state’s life sciences industry.

“As the life science industry has evolved from a fledgling cluster 25 years ago, to the expansive and growing industry it is today, it is imperative to have an organization like BioCT overseeing and supporting its growth,” Winstanley said. “This will continue to be vital as momentum increases and more states attempt to capitalize on the opportunities in this highly competitive marketplace. I look forward to working with the existing leadership team.”
