The University of Alabama System Board of Trustees recently approved a resolution authorizing UAB Health System to award Brasfield & Gorrie LLC the contract for UAB’s new medical office building in Hoover.
The final project budget will be $17.7 million, with construction costs up to $12.25 million for the 39,459-square-foot project on 3.82 acres in Stadium Trace Village.
The complex will house a variety of medical services, including primary care, oral surgery, OB/GYN services and other specialties. According to public records, UAB purchased the property for $1.95 million from Broad Metro LLC.
Stadium Trace Village, a mixed-use development off Alabama 150 and Stadium Trace Parkway at Interstate 459, is being developed by Broad Metro.
The project – one of our Commercial Real Estate Deals of the Year – will include restaurants, hotel, specialty retail and a grocery store on a 40-acre development, as we’ve previously noted.
The UAB clinic in Hoover at 2321 Alabama 150 will move to the new location when it opens. Construction is expected to begin in early 2019 and open in early 2020.
It is one of a number of projects in the works for UAB Health – a list that includes several on-campus projects, but a number of off-campus projects, as well. That list includes a freestanding emergency department and medical complex in Gardendale and a project in Avondale. It also has long-term plans to build a replacement for UAB MedWest in McCalla, but the timetable for that project is still to be determined.
