WPC breaks ground on 67,000-square-foot medical office building in Dulles
Washington Property Co. (WPC) has started work on a 67,000-square-foot medical office building in Dulles.
The building is across Route 50 from the recently opened HCA StoneSprings Medical Center on property originally targeted for residential construction.
Two medical-care providers and a pharmacy have signed leases at what will be called the Stone Ridge Medical Center, which is scheduled to open by the end of the year.
The tenants are: Virginia Pediatric Group (4,500 square feet), Jackson Clinics (3,000 square feet ) and Royal Care Pharmacy (1,500 square feet).
Bethesda, Md.-based WPC acquired the 8.4-acre site in 2016 from Van Metre Homes. According to the Bethesda-based company, the project’s overall development cost, including land acquisition, is about $21 million.
The hospital and the new medical building are designed to serve the growing population of Loudoun County, the second-fastest growing county in the U.S., according to Forbes magazine.
The 234,000-square-foot HCA StoneSprings Medical Center opened in 2015, becoming Loudoun’s first new hospital in 100 years. It offers 124 private beds, emergency care, and advanced heart and vascular care.
