Pacific Medical Buildings and Sawtooth Development Group Start Construction on Medical Office Building
SUPERIOR, CO Pacific Medical Buildings (PMB) and Sawtooth Development Group, LLC have broken ground on a four-story, 60,000-square-foot medical office building in downtown Superior, Colorado. The new development, Superior Medical Center, includes a four-story, 229 space parking structure that connects to the medical office building by a pedestrian bridge. The Superior Medical Center will be built at a cost of $18.5 million and is projected to be completed by early 2018. Littleton, Colorado, -based Intergroup Architects is the architect for the project and Denver, Colorado, -based DSP Builders, Inc. will serve as the general contractor.
Superior Medical Center is a component of Downtown Superior, formerly called Superior Town Center, located at the southeast corner of U.S. Highway 36 and McCaslin Boulevard. Downtown Superior is a 157-acre mixed-use project in various stages of development. Downtown Superior is a master-planned community providing an active downtown experience that Coloradoans desire, including exciting dining options, sporting events, outdoor recreation, and live entertainment. Plans call for 440,000 square feet of commercial and retail space, a 150,000-square-foot sports center, two hotels combining up to 500 rooms, and 1,400 residential units.
"We're excited about the opportunity to be part of the Downtown Superior project as it represents the continued evolution of the principles of consumerism in healthcare delivery. Superior Medical Center will provide a variety of ambulatory uses in a community-focused mixed-use master plan," said Jake Rohe, Partner and Senior Vice President, Development, PMB.
Shane Felker, CEO, Sawtooth Development said, "There is a lot of talk about "˜synergies' today, but this exciting new medical office building sets the gold standard for synergy by incorporating cutting-edge medical providers alongside the incredibly impressive sports training, competition, and rehabilitation facility known as "˜The Stable' in Superior."
Superior Medical Center is already 50 percent leased. Tenants include Boulder Community Health (BCH), Touchstone Imaging and Cornerstone Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. BCH will offer urgent and family-care services. Touchstone Imaging will bring X-ray, MRI and CT imaging services. Cornerstone Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, Superior Medical Center's first user, has created a sports rehab and orthopedic center of excellence. John Gustafson of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank is overseeing leasing for the building.
"In partnership with local ancillary healthcare providers, the Superior Medical Center is an asset to the greater Boulder County community by delivering urgent care, imaging and world-class orthopedic services," said Ben Rosenfeld, Development Manager, PMB.
