Avista Medical Plaza

  •       In the early 1990s, The Neenan Company and Kent Thornton of Boulder-based Colorado Equities, Inc., developed Avista One Medical Plaza in Louisville, Colorado. Avista Hospital engaged The Neenan Company to develop this cost-effective, functional and attractive medical office building. The result was a 41,000 square foot facility with architecture in harmony with the newly constructed hospital. It houses physicians from nearly all disciplines, including primary care and specialists.

          Steady growth in the area, coupled with the expansion of Avista Adventist Hospital, has necessitated the construction of a second medical office building. Avista Two Medical Plaza includes approximately 74,300 rentable square feet distributed over three levels and an additional 6000 square feet of tenant storage space. The building is located immediately south of Avista One Medical Plaza, and the two are connected on the main and upper levels by enclosed pedestrian walkways. Avista Two Medical Plaza features dedicated drop-off areas and canopies for both the ambulatory surgery center and medical office space entries.

          The Neenan Company’s ability to “bundle” development, design and construction services enabled many activities to be performed concurrently, shortening overall project duration and allowing key tenants to influence the functional design of the building.

    The bundled services resulted in:

  • Coordination with the hospital and prospective tenants during the feasibility phase to incorporate specific tenant requirements into the facility’s design. The result is a cost-effective, functional work environment for the medical staff and a comfortable, comprehensive medical facility for patients.

  • Pre-leasing of more than 70 percent of Avista Two Medical Plaza’s space, including three anchor tenants – an ambulatory surgery center, the Boulder Medical Center, and a physical therapy center for the hospital.

  • Ongoing communication with tenants regarding design needs, ownership options, plans to build a quality facility.
