An Overview of a Lab Properties Building

As a commercial real estate company that specializes in solutions for cannabis operators, we are focused on simplifying the process for the tenants we serve. We understand the unique challenges the industry faces regarding city and state licensure processes, required land use entitlements and complex buildout procedures. Our mission is to empower the greatest companies by repurposing commercial buildings specifically for the cannabis industry. Our buildings are meticulously thought-through and constructed from an operator standpoint. This results in a quicker, easier and more cost-effective path to becoming legally compliant and operational for our tenants.

What Makes a Lab Properties Building Unique?


Property Upgrades and Compliance  

Lab Properties takes care of all exterior site work to give the property a fresh new look and bring the building up to compliance, therefore making it usable by cannabis tenants. This includes Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance, fire and life safety compliance (sprinklers/fire alarms), Title 24 Compliance,new parking lots, common mailboxes, secured trash areas, new ramps, facade upgrades, drainage and perimeter fencing.


Entitlement & Licensing

Lab Properties obtains all the necessary municipal level entitlements on our properties which create designated approved commercial cannabis spaces. With the goal to help our tenants get operational quickly, we offer flexible free rent ramp-up periods while our tenants work diligently to obtain their business operating permit and build out their suites.

Suite Amenities

Every Lab Properties facility undergoes a heavy power upgrade providing sufficient electricity to operate under every license type, including a large scale cultivation. All necessary utility connections, including power, water, sewer and gas are stubbed into each suite. Each suite is delivered as a clean shell allowing tenants to design the space in a way that best suits their business operations.


Community Focused & Branded Buildings

Multi-suite buildings to promote collaboration among neighboring businesses in the supply chain and preserve a vibrant ecosystem of tenants. Each project is branded with its own identity to promote a campus culture among Lab Properties’ cannabis tenants. Activated shared common areas are available at select sites.

A high tech security infrastructure including HD camera systems, dynamic access control, motion sensors, and high intensity LED lighting throughout the site. Onsite security personnel available at select sites.


Fresh and modern aesthetics including engaging facades and attractive finishes aligned with each building’s brand architecture.


Smart buildings connected to the cloud for efficient performance with Fiber Internet. The use of cogeneration systems and wireless access points in common areas are available at select sites.


Environmentally Friendly & Sustainable

Last, but not least - drought tolerant and low maintenance landscaping, low flow plumbing, zoned and timed core systems, and advanced lighting controls to help Lab Properties’ tenants minimize their impact on the planet.

Preparing a building for use in the cannabis industry is more than just placing your equipment in an empty warehouse. It takes extensive time and money to work with city governments, architects, contractors, and other third parties to bring the building itself into compliance with local and state regulating agencies. This is time and money that could be spent launching and building your business.

Lab Properties is focused on taking on the burden of these responsibilities, so you can focus on what you do best. Together, we can build the future of cannabis.

About Nevada City and the Sierra Foothills

Nestled in the Sierra Foothills region, and conveniently located one hour away from Sacramento and just 25 minutes from the I-80 corridor -- Nevada County is quickly emerging as an important region in the regulated cannabis industry in California.

Nevada County approved a full cultivation ordinance and permitting process, effectively allowing hundreds of cultivators to participate in the regulated market.

Known for its rich- mineral soils and an environment free of mold and pathogen producing coastal sprays, Nevada County’s unique network of microclimates has allowed cultivators for decades to produce a variety of strains whose phenotypes have been able to express themselves fully in such ideal weather and soil conditions.

Nevada City, the county seat, led the charge in cannabis-friendly policy in June of 2017 and voted to implement a cannabis business ordinance, allowing the following license types to operate in green zones throughout the city:

  • Manufacturing: Type 6 (non-volatile) and Type 7 (volatile)

  • Nurseries

  • Distribution

  • Processing

  • Retail - Only one permit

Close to the means of production and to major transportation arteries such as I-80 and I-5, Nevada City is poised to become an important hub of activity for the Northern California cannabis industry.

In addition, Nevada City boasts some of the lowest tax rates in the state:
