The five-story medical complex should be completed by the end of 2015, according to those close to the project.
VCU Health System announced their intentions to occupy a new five-story medical complex to be built in the Towne Center West development near Short Pump Town Center.
Shortly after the Stanley Shield partnership announced their plan for the $38 million healthcare development a year ago, they were approached by many medical groups, including future tenant VCU Health System.
Breaking ground last week, the 110,000 square-foot medical building will include “an integrated, multi-specialty physician practice supported by state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic modalities” according to a statement provided by VCU Health System.
Stanley Shield managing member, Jimmy Stanley, explained the trend in the last five years from the medical community of bringing healthcare facilities closer to more urban centers occupied by restaurants, hotels and retailers.
Being in this “front-and-center” location provides accessibility to potential patients who frequent the centers. In addition to having a large hotel, many restaurants and retailers at Towne Center West, the center is part of a development that includes over 800 apartment units.
According to Stanley Shield, the VCU Health System Towne Center West location should be completed by the end of 2015.
