Ventas Announces University-Based R& I Development Pipeline Exceeding $1.5 Bln

Ventas Inc. (VTR) announced a development pipeline in its university-based Research & Innovation business exceeding $1.5 billion in new investments. The R&I Pipeline will be developed through the Company's extended, exclusive partnership with Wexford Science & Technology, LLC, developer of university-focused real estate solutions.

Ventas, in partnership with Wexford, has reached an agreement to develop a class-A research and innovation center anchored by Arizona State University as the first committed development in the R&I Pipeline.

In total, the R&I Pipeline is expected to be comprised of approximately 10 projects with existing and new university relationships, and will significantly enhance the Ventas/Wexford market position as the leading developer of research and innovation-focused Knowledge Communities with top-tier research universities.
