The decade-old Andover Family Medicine is getting a new home at Cornerstone Office Park at the northeast corner of 21st and 159th Street East in Andover.
“We’re continuing to grow our practice,” says physician and practice owner Lindsay Landers.
The office park is part of the 520-acre Cornerstone development, which is north of 21st Street between 159th Street East and Andover Road.
The development already has the Kansas Medical Center, the Robert M. Martin Elementary School and KMC Office Plaza.
“We like the proximity to the hospital for ancillary services for patients,” Landers says.
Ritchie Development is developing the residential portion of Cornerstone, which will have 450 houses when it’s done.
Andover Family Medicine currently is in 3,600 square feet at 105 S. Andover Road.
The new space will be 10,000 square feet.
The clinic has three physicians: Landers, Matthew Meschke and Micah Hall. It also has two physician assistants: Rachel Ewing and Emily Regehr.
“Certainly, we’ll have room for three to five more providers,” Landers says.
Also, she says the practice will be adding X-ray services at the new space, which should be finished by late this year.
J.P. Weigand & Sons broker Christi Royse handled the deal.
Greg Tice of SPT Architecture is the architect for the new building and Key Construction is the contractor.
The project is breaking ground on Friday.
Landers says that in addition to designing the space for maximum efficiency, Tice also allowed for a lot of natural light and great views of a pond by the property.
She says everything will combine for a comfortable atmosphere for patients.
“The water creates a nice feature for them,” says Amy Liebau, a spokeswoman for Laham Development, the Cornerstone developer.
Liebau adds, “We are excited to add Andover Family Medicine to the office park and feel that it will be a great addition.”
