Groundbreaking held for $10 million cancer center in Petersburg
- October 15, 2012
By summer of next year, the Petersburg area will have a new $10 million cancer center and medical office building. The project developer, the Florida-based Rendina Cos., held a groundbreaking ceremony last week for the Southside Regional Medical Arts Pavilion, saying the new center should be ready by August 2013.
The two story, 32,500-square-foot building will house the cancer center and provide offices for physicians. The center will occupy about 22,000 square feet on a 10-year lease, while physicians will be able to lease 6,000-8,000 square feet offices under five- to 10-year lease options, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
The new building will part of the Southside Regional Medical Center at 200 Medical Park Blvd. Southside Regional’s current Cancer Center is located at 801 S. Adams St. in Petersburg, where the hospital had been before moving to its current location in 2008.
The Timmons Group in Richmond will serve as the project’s engineering firm. Rendina, a private health care real estate development company based in Jupiter, Fla., plans to seek bids from local and regional contractors for the project’s construction.
