When Tig Tarlton developed a 50-acre business complex in Menlo Park in the early 1980s, the Dumbarton Bridge had just opened down the street. Most tenants were light-electronics assembly companies.

Tarlton's Menlo Business Park also pivoted, transforming the 16-building, 900,000-square-foot campus whose early tenants included Cisco Systems Inc., ETAK and Sony Electronics into a hub for small and midsize life sciences, medical device and green-tech startups.
