INSIDE by Jennifer Hayes A medical office building is taking shape adjacent to Sky Ridge Medical Center. National Healthcare Realty in con- junction with Northstar Commercial Partners started construction in Sep- tember on the 80,000-square-foot Class A medical office building in Lone Tree. Pinnacle at RidgeGate will be a three-story medical office building anchored by Colorado Orthopaedics, a top-rated national orthopedic practice led by Dr. John Xenos. Additionally, the building will be home to well- established and synergistic medical tenants. “This is going to be the ideal build- ing for health care providers that want to be in Lone Tree and take advantage of a very dynamic health care ecosystem next to one of the most profitable hospitals in Colorado,” said Jecoah Byrnes, CEO of National Healthcare Realty. “We are offering tenants the ability to have a premier campus-style location without all of the usual restrictions and complica- tions they would typically encounter in a hospital-owned medical build- ing.” Pinnacle at RidgeGate will feature unobstructed mountain views, a 4.25:1,000 surface parking ratio, suite sizes ranging from 4,500 to 27,000 sf and individual physician equity investment is available. Construction is expected to be com- plete in summer 2019 with tenants occupying the state-of-the-art facility shortly thereafter. Fransen Pittman is the general con- tractor for building, designed by Boul- der Associates. American National Insurance Co. is the lender. National Healthcare Realty is han- dling leasing of the space, geared to imaging, pain management, physical therapy and various other specialists. National Healthcare Realty pur- chased the 4.85-acre parcel from RidgeGate Investments for an undis- closed price. The seller was repre- sented in the sale by Matt Smith of Vector Property Services and National Healthcare Realty represented itself. The continued growth and expan- sion of Lone Tree and Douglas County have drawn medical practices from around the region as the city benefits not only from population growth and job creation efforts but also an already healthy medical environment, accord- ing to National Healthcare. Addition- ally, Lone Tree and Douglas County has some of the strongest demo- graphics in the nation with more than 80 percent of residents maintaining private health insurance coverage and accessing medical care in the com- munity at least once annually. s IPD brings speed, value to Children’s Hospital Colorado North Campus Integration PAGE 12 A fresh approach to powering today’s health care facilities Designing senior facilities to bring elements of the natural world in Power on Room with a view PAGE 20 PAGE 24 Growth drives off-campusMOB development October 2018
