DENVER, COLORADO, November 13, 2017 – Plans are underway for a new medical office campus on the north side of Colorado Springs, adjacent to the expanding UC Health Memorial North Campus. Mortenson Development in a joint venture with Realty Management Group recently announced plans to build a multi-phased medical office campus at the intersection of Union Boulevard & Powers Boulevard, across from the UC Health Memorial Hospital and future Children’s Hospital of Colorado. The project, formally known as the Pine Creek Medical Center, will include up to 50,000 square feet of Class A medical office space in the first phase. Mortenson Development has selected National Healthcare Realty to be the exclusive broker to handle the marketing and pre-leasing of the new campus.
“Colorado Springs and most of northern El Paso County haven’t seen much in the way of new medical office building development in recent years” said Jecoah Byrnes, CEO of National Healthcare Realty. “The hospital has performed very well under the UC Health brand, and there is a renewed interest by physicians who want to be near the hospital campus and in close proximity to their growing patient base. Add to that the overall lack of availability in the area, and we have received a very positive response from the local medical community”.
As patients are accessing healthcare in a more retail oriented fashion, location and visibility are now more than ever key in the success of medical office buildings and the tenants that occupy them. “Our location is really unmatched in the market” said Taber Sweet, Development Executive with Mortenson Development. “Our JV partner, Realty Management Group, had the long-term vision for this land and collectively, we have been able to create a very thoughtful healthcare project in a strong retail corridor. Now with the recent news of the Powers extension continuing north to Interstate 25, our location is just that much more accessible to people living north of the city in places like Northgate, Monument, Gleneagle, and Black Forest”.
Davis Architects was awarded the design contract, and Mortenson Construction will be the general contractor. The first phase of the project is scheduled to break ground in the 2nd quarter of 2018.
