News Release: PMB Announces Major Milestones for Upcoming New St. Mary’s Medical Pavilion in Tucson AZ

Officials at the San Diego-based healthcare real estate firm say they are now demolishing the adjacent plaza to make way for parking, and that the $19 million pavilion is 74 percent leased

TUCSON, Ariz., and SAN DIEGO, Nov. 12, 2020 – PMB, one of the nation’s leading healthcare real estate owners and developers across the continuum of care, announced major construction and leasing milestones for the new Class A, 55,000-square-foot St. Mary’s Medical Pavilion it is developing on the Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital campus in Tucson.

PMB has completed the shell building at 1707 W. St. Mary’s Road and has begun demolition of the adjacent, obsolete 37,000-square-foot Century Medical Plaza that the firm acquired in December 2018. PMB will develop 275 surface parking spaces on the cleared area for visitors to the building.

Mark D. Toothacre, President of PMB, said, “Our team at PMB is thrilled to successfully complete the building shell and to finalize the agreement to demolish the outdated medical plaza next to the pavilion. We are well on our way to advancing the delivery of high-quality, much-needed modern healthcare that will serve nearly 240,000 patients in western Tucson and the surrounding communities.”

Mr. Toothacre also announced that the $19 million project on the campus of the 400-bed acute-care hospital is already

74 percent pre-leased by a wide variety of healthcare providers. A major healthcare group will anchor the building with a 23,000-square-foot multispecialty practice. Other tenants will be The Oncology Institute of Hope and Innovation, MHC (Marana Health Clinic), Grossman & Grossman, Sonora Quest Labs and Pima Orthopedics.

Jake Dinnen, PMB Senior Vice President Development, said he is pleased with the amount of pre-leasing for the pavilion.

“A number of high-quality tenants have already reserved space in the pavilion and we are seeing strong interest in the remaining available space,” Mr. Dinnen says. “The pavilion provides many benefits to tenants, including customizable suites; market lease rates; an ideal, convenient location; and the opportunity to be an investor/owner in the building.”

The architect for the project is Swaim Associates Ltd., and the general contractor is Barker Contracting Inc., which are both headquartered in Tucson. Leasing is being handled by Tucson-based Cushman & Wakefield/Picor, and the property manager will be San Diego-based PMB RES. Capital One – Healthcare Financial Services is providing funding. The pavilion is slated to be completed in January 2021.

A limited amount of space is still available in St. Mary’s Medical Pavilion. Interested healthcare providers should contact Richard Kleiner, Cushman & Wakefield/Picor at [email protected] or 520-546-2745.
