A new biotech incubator concept, right in Manhattan
With a beautiful wet lab outfitted with modern biotech equipment, combined with exciting classes and events, we are creating a community to turn ideas into inventions that solve real health problems
Who We Are
- Harlem Biospace (Hb) is a new biotech incubator, the first of its kind in New York City to offer affordable shared wet-lab space for competitively-selected entrants
- Situated at the heart of three academic campuses (Columbia University, City College of New York, and future Columbia Manhattanville campus), with easy access to other major universities and the vibrancy of New York City via the A, B, C, D and 1 trains, eight bus lines, and only three blocks from the Hudson River bike trail and West Side Highway
- Located in the old Factory District of Harlem, an exciting new development attracting technology companies and start-ups, Hb will be housed in the Sweets Building, a former laboratory for confectionery research located at 423 West 127th Street
- Walking distance to the world-famous Red Rooster, the legendary Apollo Theater, Michelin-recommended Jin Ramen, Maison Harlem, multiple Starbucks, and many high-quality independent restaurants and coffee shops (click on map for details)
