HTA will develop a Class A MOB with 84,000 square foot of GLA located on CommonSpirit’s (formerly Dignity) Memorial Hospital in Bakersfield, CA. This MOB is expected to cost approximately $30 million to develop, with construction expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2019 and be completed by the first quarter of 2021. This development will expand HTA’s relationship with CommonSpirit to a 10th hospital campus and will bring occupancy with HTA to over 470,000 square feet with this key health system.
HTA has partnered with Cuningham Group to design the MOB keeping sustainability, wellness and healthcare design trends in mind. The project will use carpet made from recycled ocean nets, feature wall acrylic and partitions made from HDPE material (recycled plastic bottles) and drought tolerant landscaping to reduce water need. Wellness will be promoted through water dispensing stations on all floors, biophilic design through nature inspired textures in the porcelain flooring and carpet patterns and accents of green and blue color tones to promote calming. Overall the project will be designed with future growth in mind to allow for different tenant needs over time and changes in healthcare.
