Genesis is the first high-rise Life Science campus in the Bay Area featuring an assortment of Class A amenities. The amenities bring synergy to the thriving ecosystem that will accommodate its Life Science tenants. South San Francisco is one of the world’s top biotech clusters and these featured amenities will cater to the Genesis campus and its surrounding Life Science neighbors.
The Bay Area has an eclectic assortment of well-respected artists that are featured in galleries throughout the Peninsula. Genesis will provide a new destination to showcase local artists and their work. The featured tunnels, providing access to the North Tower and South Tower, will host a rotation of artwork throughout the year. In addition, the lobbies of the North Tower, South Tower and Amenity Building will also feature selected works of art.
Situated at the foothills of the San Bruno Mountain range, Genesis has planned for a high-end boutique hotel to service the local South San Francisco community. The hotel will be located in the 7-Story Amenity Building between the North Tower and South Tower where it will overlook the bay-front views and the cascading, green hillsides surrounding Genesis. The conceptual theme for the hotel will encompass the Life Science and R&D ecosystem by having unique details throughout that feature prominent individuals in the industry and educate guests of the South San Francisco biotech cluster during their stay. South San Francisco is one of the world’s largest Biotech and R&D clusters, home to some of the first biotech companies in the world. Creating a campus that facilitates growth and interaction between people and continues to advance the local culture and community are achievements of which Genesis can be proud.
The first floor of the 21-story North Tower building will house Conference Center, equipped with executive board rooms and conference rooms that tenants can reserve and utilize on a first come first served basis, free of charge. The assorted conference rooms will be equipped with presentation tools including projectors, flat screens, free Wi-Fi, video and teleconference connections and more.
Genesis’ ±5,600 square foot Fitness Center, currently located in the South Tower, has a great combination of cardio, weight and High Intensity Training (HIT) equipment to accommodate each individual’s workout routine. The ±1,500 square foot Yoga Studio is beautifully lit with natural light, full length mirrors and an interactive flat screen for yoga sessions. This Fitness Center provides an excellent atmosphere for workouts and to accomplish personal fitness goals and is accessible from 6 AM – 8 PM, making it easy for employees to utilize the facility and equipment before, during or after work.
Upon the completion of the Amenity Building, the current Fitness Center will be converted to additional amenity space for tenants such as a café & wine bar that opens onto the patio lounge or additional conference rooms.
Upon the completion of the Amenity Building, the Fitness Center will be relocated to a central location in between the North Tower and South Tower. The new Fitness Center will be a state-of-the-art center with wellness coaches, nutritionists and onsite trainers that will provide services to tenants.

A high-end restaurant is planned to occupy a portion of the retail space in the 7-Story Amenity Building. The restaurant will have a trendy, upscale vibe with an acclaimed menu for guests. The restaurant will be open to the public, tenants and hotel guests to host dinner meetings, private events and more.
The South Tower at Genesis houses Focaccia Market & Bakery, a family-owned business that began at their Sacramento street store and has now expanded to multiple locations throughout San Francisco and the Bay area.

Furnished with upscale lounge furniture, fire pits to create a comfortable ambiance and umbrellas to provide shaded areas, this outdoor space will be an oasis for employees to break away from their typical work space.
The PAC is a unique amenity to Genesis and to South San Francisco with its large capacity allotment. The 230-person Performing Arts Center (PAC) located in the South Tower is available to tenants for use by easily reserving through our on-site property management team. The ability to arrange the space in theater style, classroom style, or a variety of other ways allows for great flexibility. On-site restaurants at Genesis allow for convenient catering for office events and on-site meetings. This space creates an opportunity for large groups to meet in a common and collaborative area at the project outside of their typical suite for progressive thinking.
Genesis is equipped with transportation services that run to the top 3 public transit lines during the mornings and evenings. Accommodating our tenants with this service provides more efficient transportation throughout the Bay Area and contributes to a healthier environment.
