Marana is one step closer to welcoming Ventana Medical Systems to town.
Town officials and representatives from Ventana and Cottonwood Properties celebrated groundbreaking on a distribution and light assembly facility in Marana on Monday. The building will be 60,000 square feet and will replace a current Ventana building in Tucson. It will be the first tenant of Cottonwood’s Tangerine Commerce Park, located less than a half-mile from Interstate 10.
CBRE Group, an affiliate of Cottonwood Properties, is constructing and leasing the building. The facility is expected to open in six to eight months.
Ventana Medical Systems is a member of the Roche Group and an innovator of tissue-based cancer diagnostic solutions for patients worldwide. At its main campus in Oro Valley, Ventana delivers medical diagnostic systems and biopsy-based cancer tests that are shaping the future of healthcare.
Tangerine Commerce Park is the only mixed-use and industrial development along the quickly developing Tangerine Corridor with direct access to Oro Valley and the bio-tech industries.
