Construction should begin on the Veteran Affairs Administration’s new Plano outpatient clinic in the next month, according to the Dallas firm that represents the project’s future landlord.
Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services said construction on the inside of the existing medical office building at 3804 W. 15th Street should begin in the next 30 to 45 days. The VA will take up about 10,000 square feet of the 30,328 square foot building. The single story MOB was built in 2008 on about four acres of land across from the Medical Center of Plano.
“The 30,328-sf medical office building, which has 6,625 sf of available space, was at the top of the list for the GSA and VA. “It’s not all that easy in that submarket to find that much contiguous square footage,” says Paul Richter, market director for Dallas-based Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services
About 6,000 veterans will now be able to receive access to care closer to home without having to travel to the VA’s flagship hospital in South Dallas. It took nearly 18 months to close the lease. This facility will offer primary care, mental health services, X-rays, laboratory services, and telemedicine.
