WICHITA — Construction is set to begin shortly at the new Cornerstone Office Park at the 520-acre Cornerstone development in Andover.
There will be room for 150,000 square feet of office space at nine buildings, the first of which will be a new medical building.
"With the success of the hospital, it's just a natural fit to have medical practices wanting to locate at Cornerstone," says developer George Laham. "Obviously, we have a lot of interest right now from ... medical groups that want to be located in the area."
Laham Development and Ritchie Development are the developers of Cornerstone, which is north of 21st Street between 159th Street East and Andover Road.
The 18,000-square-foot medical building will be adjacent to the Kansas Medical Center. KMC CEO Badr Idbeis will be one of the physicians to use the new space.
The two-level building will have the same architectural design as the hospital.
There will be a reception area, exam rooms and offices for physicians. One feature of the building is a clerestory that will allow natural light inside.
