New medical office building in the works on site across from new hospital
By ALEX MCRAE
South-Tree Enterprises and Quantum Commercial Real Estate celebrated the groundbreaking of Newnan Professional Center, a 40,000-square-foot, class “A” medical office building.
The site is located at 2401 Newnan Crossing Boulevard at Poplar Road, across from the new Piedmont Newnan Hospital campus.
Dr. Gregory Alvarez of Ankle & Foot Centers of Georgia said, “We are excited about this new state-of-the-art facility. The location is absolutely perfect with its proximity to the new hospital. Newnan has been a great place for us to practice now for years, and it just made great sense for us to have a presence close to this fabulous new hospital. This will greatly enhance the healthcare of our community and the region.”
South-Tree Enterprises plans to build a total of three medical office buildings on site of more than 12 acres.
Piedmont Newnan is set to move into its new facility Tuesday.
“With the upcoming May 8 move-in date for Piedmont Newnan Hospital’s new 136-bed facility, we felt the timing was perfect to kick off this project,” said Paul Schwinne, broker, Quantum Commercial Real Estate. “We’ve had a good amount of interest in this project and are pleased to have two practices from Piedmont Physicians Group and a division of Piedmont Newnan Hospital on board as our first tenants.
“There is such a high demand for medical space in that immediate area. We will have the new Piedmont Newnan Hospital located across the street, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, which is just 1.5 miles away, a proposed 50-bed Health-South Rehab Hospital, which will be located next door to NPC.”
The general contractor for the NPC facility is South-Tree Enterprises. South-Tree president Chuck Ogletree said, “We have several tenants that want to be in the building by the end of this year. We eel confident we can have the facility ready in December 2012.”
Designed by Jefferson Browne Designs, the building will have a brick and glass exterior with high-end interiors. The natural setting of NPC will be maintained with numerous landscaped beds. The facility will offer plentiful parking, a covered patient drop off and a hospital-sized elevator to accommodate medical office needs.
