SUMMARY

Flagship Healthcare Properties formed a joint venture relationship with Caldwell Memorial Hospital, part of UNC Heath Care, to complete the 15,000 square foot Laurel Park Medical Office Building. Laurel Park Women’s Health and Mulberry Pediatrics, two of Caldwell UNC Health Care’s outpatient practices, are located in the facility. Built on an urban infill site in downtown Lenoir, the property is situated less than half a mile from the main Caldwell UNC Health Care hospital campus.

CHALLENGES

  • The required building envelope and small site created design, development, construction and staging issues throughout the project period.

SOLUTIONS

  • The Flagship Healthcare Properties team worked closely with city planning officials to reuse an infill site donated to the hospital and negotiated a shared parking agreement.
  • Both the building and parking were designed around an existing sculpture park on the property.
  • Flagship delivered the project under budget, saving the ownership entity 6% of the total project cost.
