Riverside, CA — Pacific Medical Buildings (PMB) and Jacobs Development Company have broken ground on a two-story, 27,000-square-foot medical office building in Riverside, CA. Once completed at year-end, the building will be 100 percent occupied by RadNet, the leading national provider of freestanding, fixed-site diagnostic imaging services in the U.S.
“RadNet is committed to providing high quality healthcare that is convenient and accessible. We are pleased to be an integral part of a project that will improve the quality of healthcare to a diverse and growing community,” said Norman Hames, President and COO, RadNet.
The site unto which the project is located is situated between a DEA building and two historic Victorian homes dating back to 1891. 14 Victorian homes were relocated prior to the purchase of the land, which was sold to PMB and Jacobs Development by the City of Riverside.
“The building will provide much needed healthcare services to the area. RadNet is a leader in value-based healthcare delivery and we are proud to be their healthcare real estate development partner helping them deliver low-cost, high-quality healthcare services to the greater Riverside community. This development is further proof of RadNet and PMB’s continued commitment to care for the Riverside community,” said Ben Rosenfeld, Vice President, Development, PMB.
The new building, located in the Prospect Place Historic District at 4500 Olivewood Avenue, is in close proximity to downtown Riverside. While the building features concrete tilt wall construction, the team has worked to seamlessly integrate its clean design into the surrounding community including a monument wall at the main entry and customized canopy at the entry to provide shade and weather protection for patients and visitors.
“This community is underserved for efficient and accessible healthcare services. This provided a great opportunity for us to work with RadNet, the City of Riverside and other great community groups and organizations to create a facility that will meet the needs of the surrounding community. We are very excited to create a top-notch facility that will meet the medical needs of the surrounding community,” said Pietro Martinez, Project Manager, Architecture and Construction, PMB.
Ware Malcomb is the architect for the project along with Psomas as civil engineer and Oltmans Construction Company as general contractor. The drought tolerant landscaping is being designed by Community Works Design Group.
