In order to further fuel its growth engine, Terreno Realty Corporation (TRNO - Snapshot Report) – the industrial real estate investment trust (REIT) – disclosed the lease extensions at its East Caribbean Drive buildings in Sunnyvale, CA.

Specifically, the extensions were made for additional five years for the tenant, a molecular diagnostics company, thereby pushing the expiry date of the two leases to Mar 31, 2025. The move helps in securing steady rental revenue for Terreno Realty.
