About the Alexandria

Our Story

The Alexandria is the crossroads for The Alexandria Center for Life Sciences (ACLS) community. A members-only club that welcomes all of the ACLS tenants and that extends an open invitation for all others to join and actively engage in making a positive and meaningful impact on our world.

How Our Journey Began

The idea for a private club at ACLS was born of a desire to connect people with common interests in a social club set in the heart of Silicon Valley’s hub for science and technology. Invited and Alexandria Real Estate Equities have already successfully partnered in bringing together entrepreneurs and creatives in an energetic environment at The Collective in Seattle’s South Lake Union cluster. With The Alexandria at San Carlos, the team saw the opportunity to create a space that blended the surrounding nature of the tidal marshlands with the buzzing hub of innovation the area is known for.

Our Space

Our dynamic space in the heart of San Carlos is a place of comfort and community, with productivity zones, quiet enclaves and plenty of spots for socializing and coming together. We looked to the tidal marshlands for inspiration in creating a space that is both tranquil and engaging, so you can come to both relax and innovate.

The Experience

We are about connecting people who want to live life to the fullest through shared meals, shared experiences and a commitment to growing and improving themselves and our world.
