Newmark Grubb Knight Frank (NGKF) Global Healthcare Services is pleased to announce that it has been appointed the exclusive leasing agent for a medical office project to be built in Atlanta’s booming Central Perimeter submarket, offering best-in-class access and visibility from GA 400 in one of the area’s most active districts. NorthPlace Medical is currently in development by Childress Klein and MidCity Real Estate Partners and is due for completion in early 2019.
The NGKF Global Healthcare Services team of Todd Perman, Dana Hamric, and Chris Witcher will handle pre-leasing on behalf of Childress Klein and MidCity for the project located at the northeast corner of Barfield Road and Mt. Vernon Highway. According to the team, NorthPlace Medical offers the flexibility to meet the needs of Atlanta’s medical community, offering both low-density and high-density options. In addition, as the project moves forward, there will be opportunities for complementary retail uses on the ground floor.
NorthPlace Medical will reside in the burgeoning Barfield medical corridor that has become the prime off-campus option for healthcare providers looking for proximity to “Pill Hill” combined with the direct accessibility, amenity base and visibility of the Barfield corridor. Central Perimeter’s off-campus Class A medical office vacancy rate is at an all-time low. The addition of NorthPlace will offer healthcare providers the opportunity to provide their patients convenient and easily accessible healthcare.
The new building is also being planned to provide improved access for outpatient services with convenient ambulatory drop-off areas and immediate access to the exclusive on-site parking that will include a variety of parking options, including surface, covered structured and underground.
“We’re targeting the key Atlanta-area health systems and large physician practices that will benefit from the unparalleled access and visibility that NorthPlace will offer,” said Dana Hamric, managing director of NGKF.
“We look forward to working with the Global Healthcare Services team and utilizing their deep base of connections and deep understanding of the healthcare community,” said Kirk Demetrops, president of MidCity Real Estate Partners.
“As we seek to complete a quick pre-lease of the building, the NGKF team will be key in delivering a best-in-class medical office facility to serve the Metro Atlanta region,” said Gordon Buchmiller, Atlanta managing partner of Childress Klein.
