Orlando Health has announced plans for two new additions to its downtown Orlando campus. This week, plans for a new building located at 1800 S. Orange Avenue were submitted to City of Orlando's planning division to begin the review and approval process. The one-story, 6,800 square foot facility will become home to a new Orlando Health Imaging Center. The new site will include state-of-the-art MRI, Open MRI, Radiology, CT Scan, Interventional Radiology and Mammography.
"We're excited about bringing this new flagship imaging center to the heart of the Downtown South district on Orange Avenue," said Matt Taylor, AICP, vice president of asset strategy for Orlando Health. "In addition to serving patients with the most technologically-advanced equipment in a welcoming setting, we are providing convenient patient parking adjacent to the building. The new location offers patients easy access to imaging services near their work or home."
Construction on the new Orlando Health Imaging Center is planned to begin this spring with completion by fall 2019.
Orlando Health also submitted land development plans to the City this week for a new building located on West Copeland Drive between Sligh Boulevard and Lucerne Terrace. The facility will feature a nine-level visitor and team member parking structure with 895 parking spaces. The structure will also include just more than 12,000 square feet of medical office space on street level facing Copeland Drive and a five-level, 42,000 square foot office building facing Sligh Boulevard.
"The new parking structure and office building is located at the western gateway to our downtown campus," said Mr. Taylor. "The modern, timeless architecture will be a strong complement to the historic train station and Sun Rail platform, welcoming visitors to our campus."
Once permitted, construction of the new structure is expected to begin in spring 2019 with completion scheduled for nine months later.
