Sports Med Properties (“Sports Med”) and The Keith Corporation (“TKC”) announced today that construction has commenced on a 23,215 square foot, Class-A medical office building in the heart of the Steele Creek area, at the intersection of South Tryon Street and Steele Creek Road in Charlotte, NC. This project will be the second partnership between Charlotte-based Sports Med and TKC, and is slated for completion in December 2017.
The building will be constructed adjacent to the Rivergate Shopping Center, a 236,579-square-foot retail center featuring several large destination anchors and many smaller, upscale boutiques in a pedestrian-friendly environment. The new facility will offer an easily accessible home for the many medical providers seeking to meet the growth demand, in the heart of the booming Steele Creek and Lake Wylie residential communities.
“With more and more families moving to this southwest Charlotte neighborhood, Sports Med and TKC saw the lack of convenient healthcare facilities nearby. Additionally, through discussions with our medical clients, we realized one of the biggest struggles they face in this area, is finding Class A space in the right location. We set out on this venture together to solve that issue for them” said Randy Russell, President of Sports Med.
Alan Jenkins, TKC Healthcare Partner stated, “The trend in healthcare real estate is driving towards retail locations. This building is perfectly located among retail and other medical services providing convenient access to the patient population.”
Currently there is +/- 11,000 square feet remaining available for lease at the project.
