A two-story 20,126-square-foot medical office building is nearing completion in Nampa in anticipation of the summer 2017 opening of the new Saint Alphonsus Medical Center – Nampa.
The Summit Professional Medical Center at 16211 N. Brinson St. sits across from the Ford Idaho Center, just south of the College of Western Idaho – and just across the freeway from the 100-room new Saint Alphonsus hospital construction site that is dominating the Garrity Boulevard skyline.
Meridian-based Turin Investments is betting that physicians will want office space near the hospital with this $4 million investment. So far, the only lease signed involves 2,900 square feet for Allante Life Med Spa.
“People are saying ‘You are building a 20,000-square-foot spec building?’” said Dyan Chacon, manager of Turin Investment and accountant at Dave Evans Construction, the project’s general contractor. “Two tenants are looking quite seriously. If they sign leases, it will be filled.”
Until then, Summit has 7,187 square feet available on the ground floor and 10,063 square feet on the second floor for purchase or lease.
Chacon said if the building leases out quickly, the investors are willing to build a second, identical building next door. A third office building is not out of the question.
“We just don’t know the demand,” Chacon said. “We are just testing the waters.”
The building was designed by Robert Powell, a staff architect at Dave Evans Construction.
