Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory has chosen to build its new research facility on the Richmond shoreline, a move that could rank the city with Livermore and Berkeley as a new hub for scientific innovation.

The lab's new campus will bring in more than 800 jobs, attract spin-off enterprises and generate millions of dollars in tax revenue that could transform the city of 100,000 residents.


The site is surrounded by eucalyptus trees, with the Bay Trail winding along the shore and plenty of geese, turkeys, egrets and other wildlife.

The new campus will focus on cancer and health, environment and energy research. It's expected to open in 2016.
