Baptist Health is closer to opening at Mandarin Landing.
The city is reviewing a permit for Meyer Najem Construction, a Jacksonville construction manager, to demolish and renovate the interior of the former Office Depot at 10601 San Jose Blvd., Building 200, at a cost of almost $4.45 million.
Kasper architects + associates Inc. of Jacksonville is the architect.
The build-out will include patient exam rooms, a lab, offices and more services in the 24,658-square-foot space. Office Depot closed in November 2020.
The city issued a permit June 7 for North Coast Construction Co. to renovate the building facade for Baptist Health at a construction cost of $1.33 million.
Landlord and property owner Regency Centers Corp. is renovating, demolishing and adding space at the 140,021-square-foot Mandarin Landing, which is on 17.3 acres north of Interstate 295.
Baptist Health said it is relocating two Mandarin medical offices into the former Office Depot building with a opening targeted for early 2024.
Baptist Health said two Baptist Primary Care offices - Mandarin North and Mandarin West - will relocate to the building, which will include a laboratory “to make outpatient blood work easily accessible to Baptist Primary Care patients.”
“These two primary care practices have dedicated themselves to caring for generations of Mandarin families,” said Catherine Graham, Baptist Health senior vice president of Clinical Service Lines and Ambulatory Business Development, in March.
She said the location will allow Baptist Health to continue serving its long-standing patients “while at same time enabling convenient access to care for the many new families moving into our community daily.”
