MedProperties Group, a Chicago-based medical real estate developer, announced plans for its third property and first ground-up development in Arizona, Mercy Medical West, in Gilbert.
The company plans to break ground in the first half of 2017 on the 40,000-square-foot, two-story medical office building at Mercy Road and Rome Street across from Dignity’s Mercy Gilbert Medical Center.
“I am very excited about this project and the tremendous interest we are receiving from physician groups and ambulatory surgery-center providers to be a part of this,” said Matthew Campbell, CEO and founding partner of MedProperties Group. “Our architects have created a strikingly beautiful building that will be enjoyed by patients and doctors for many years and will be a very modern and attractive complement to Dignity’s beautiful hospital campus.”
Mercy Medical West will include a 20,000-square-foot surgical center that will occupy the second floor of the building. The first floor is available for lease to single or multiple tenants, with space from about 1,700 to 20,000 square feet.
Mercy Medical West has generous parking with 6.5 spaces per 1,000 square feet. The building features a 36-foot-high curved stepping façade with deep, recessed, energy-efficient window groupings, each accented with a steel canopy shade structure. The west entry elevation curves with feature window groupings with accented steel. The southwestern entry has a porte-cochere arrival with a sweeping curved metal panel canopy. The two-story lobby is fronted with a two-story curtain wall with recessed glazing highlighted with a metal panel wrapped wall and overhanging parapet.
Mercy Medical West is adjacent to MedProperties’ Mercy Medical Commons, a 46,732-square-foot medical office property. The emerging medical corridor services the fast-growing Gilbert and East Valley populations of 247,000 and 1.4 million residents, respectively.
“We have been in the Gilbert area since 2013 with our Mercy Medical Commons property, which has been very successful as it is now nearing full lease up, Campbell said. “This project is a natural extension of our plans to continue to provide quality patient-centered medical facilities in the East Valley corridor, which continues to be the fastest-growing submarket in the Phoenix metropolitan area.”
