Recursion Expands Salt Lake City, Utah, Headquarters

Recursion, a clinical-stage biotechnology company decoding biology by integrating technological innovations across biology, chemistry, automation, machine learning and engineering, is doubling the size of its headquarters at The Gateway in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah.

The company originally signed a lease in 2018 for 100,000 square feet at The Gateway, where it currently has over 250 employees. Recursion reported it signed a new lease for an additional 100,000 square feet. The company is expected to expand into its new space in the second quarter of 2022.

"Recursion is a pioneer in the emerging field of technology-enabled drug discovery. To deliver on our mission we have grown our world-class team of scientists, engineers, clinicians and company builders by more than 60% in the last year," said Recursion President and COO Tina M. Larson. "Expanding our laboratory footprint will allow us to grow our proprietary biological dataset even faster and add several novel capabilities in biology and chemistry research."

Recursion said its expansion comes after the formation of BioHive, a new public-private collaboration that will expand business development in Utah's growing healthcare innovation sector.

"Recursion is a tremendous partner for Salt Lake City on numerous fronts," said Clark Cahoon, with the Salt Lake City Department of Economic Development. "Their continued success in the healthcare innovation ecosystem comes as no surprise with their dedication to improving lives. We applaud this expansion at The Gateway and could not be happier to have Recursion expand their footprint in downtown Salt Lake City."

BioHive serves as the brand representing Utah's healthcare innovation community, of which Salt Lake City is the hub, supporting some of the greatest entrepreneurs and companies in the country. Leaders from these companies have joined up with local economic development and industry backers to represent more than 1,000 Utah companies in the biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, diagnostics, genomics, biotechnology, health tech, and digital informatics fields. The Gateway sits at the epicenter of BioHive.
