New Building Breaks Ground In Heartside

This dispatch was added by one of our Nonprofit Neighbors. It does not represent the editorial voice of The Rapidian or Community Media Center.

Underwriting support from:


Doug Bouwer of High Pointe Real Estate attended the January Heartside Business Association meeting to share plans for an extension at 245 Cherry Street. The current health facility expansion will include an additional 50 thousand square feet of space for health care related programs and businesses. The project will include new facilities for Advantage Health’s nearby OBGYN Program and Family Practice. In addition, the space will double the existing Saint Mary’s Sleep Lab. Finally, following the trend of existing businesses relocating to the downtown area, Advantage Health’s Weigh to Wellness program currently located on the East Beltline will also be joining the development.


The Health Central Project is not new to HighPointe. Originally slated to begin development in 2008, the project was delayed due to the economic downshift.


With an expanded timeline and revision of committed tenants, the original plans were scrapped and Integrated Architecture developed the current site blueprint. Attention was paid to retaining surface parking and developing an accessible glass entrance façade that includes several floors of well-lit meeting and conference rooms. The project is located at Cherry and Jefferson by the roundabout. Construction should be breaking ground in January 2011 and expect to complete the project within a year.


According to Doug the project would not have been possible without support from the city and the DDA. He expressed his appreciation for their support and assistance.
