$25 million sports medicine and rehab facility going up in Chesterfield County
- August 4, 2010
Health-care facilities continue to be a bright spot in Richmond’s commercial real estate market. West End Orthopaedic Clinic and HCA Virginia’s CJW Medical Center announced the groundbreaking Wednesday of a $25 million, 70,000-square-foot project in Chesterfield County that will serve as a regional specialty center for sports medicine treatment and rehabilitation.
West End Orthopaedic Clinic Administrator James Perkins said that the initiative will bring together leading orthopaedic specialists in the treatments of hands, knees, hips and spine as well as sports medicine and outpatient surgery in one building. “We’re very excited about this new state-of-the-art facility …” Perkins said in a statement.
Serving as project developer is Richmond-based Lingerfelt Development. The center is being built at the entrance to Boulders Corporate Park at the intersection of Chippenham Parkway and Jahnke Road, providing easy access to HCA’s Chippenham Hospital.
While under construction, the two-story building is expected to provide 180 jobs. Completion is scheduled for summer 2011. Lingerfelt said it plans to seek LEED certification (Leadership in Energy Efficiency Design) for the building’s green design and operation. It has selected architectural firm Price Studios, Hourigan Construction and engineering firm Rummel, Klepper & Kahl as members of the project team.
