Wilmington Health is expanding its footprint in the Port City by another 30,000 square feet, according to an announcement Thursday.
One of the area’s largest health care companies, Wilmington Health is leasing all of the planned 30,000-square-foot building that will be The Offices at Mayfaire V, a news release said.
“Right now our plans are to expand the services that we’re currently providing there — internal medicine, pediatrics, OB-GYN, plastic surgery,” said Chris Bunch, COO of Wilmington Health, referring to the Wilmington Health spaces in The Offices at Mayfaire I and II.
He said the company is evaluating other primary care and specialty services as possibilities for the Mayfaire area.
Wilmington Health has provided health care to the residents of southeastern North Carolina for more than 40 years, and is a private, fully-integrated, multi-specialty medical group practice with more than 20 locations.
“We are committed to continuing to provide the highest quality care to our patients at convenient locations closer to their homes and look forward to expanding our services in the Mayfaire area,” Bunch said in the release.
The Mayfaire V announcement comes on the heels of the news that banking software firm nCino is leasing all 40,000 square feet of The Offices at Mayfaire VI. The fifth and sixth buildings are the final phase of the class-A office park behind Mayfaire Community Center, and they will be built at the same time.
A groundbreaking ceremony for both buildings is scheduled for 10 a.m. Nov. 9 at The Offices at Mayfaire, 6751 Parker Farm Drive.
“We could not be more pleased to have two companies with the reputations of Wilmington Health and nCino wanting to expand their business inside our office park,” said Steve Anderson, developer of the Mayfaire office park.
Both Mayfaire V and Mayfaire VI will feature the Offices at Mayfaire signature blue mirrored glass and both will be the first to have one single tenant to occupy the entire building, the release said.
Construction for both buildings is scheduled to be completed in 2018.
McKinley Building Corp. is the contractor for all six Mayfaire office buildings in the office park, which began with Mayfaire I in 2011.
Steve Hall, partner in Maus, Warwick, Matthews & Co., is the listing agent for the Offices at Mayfaire IV and V.
“Working with SAMM Properties was so easy. They anticipated what I needed before I even thought of it. I never had to ask any questions about the process. Everything was explained in detail all along the way. I would recommend them to anyone looking to lease or purchase space for their business.”
“After renting my office space for 20 years we purchased our medical office space from SAMM Properties four years ago. Best business decision I've ever made! SAMM is easy to work with and they over deliver. I highly recommend them.”
“Steve Anderson is a quality person, who builds a quality product, and makes the entire process a quality experience. He knows what owners want and need in a commercial property. I have purchased two units in Howe Creek Landing and have been delighted.”
“We worked with Steve Anderson on the lease of our office space in Mayfaire. We were thrilled with the final outcome and look, all beyond our expectation. What we appreciate most was his communication, attention to detail, and delivery of expected results and then some within the expected time frame.”
“My wife and I were leasing space for our retail store here in Wilmington and Steve approached us about purchasing space in Phase II of Anderson Square. Since we had always wanted to own our store space, we actively pursued purchasing a location in Anderson Square. I had known Steve for a number of years but had never had a business relationship with him. I was not surprised at all to find that it was an absolute pleasure to deal with him as our new location was being built. He was always available to help in any way he could to be a problem solver during the construction. I had been expecting a lot of hassles during the build as the gremlins seem to thrive around construction sites, but my experience was the opposite. If I needed help or advice, Steve was right there smoothing the way.
We opened our new location in 2004 and I worked closely with Steve until he sold his interest in Anderson Square in 2016. During those years, I found him to be very concerned about the welfare of all the store owners in the center and was constantly picking up trash, hanging Christmas decorations or driving through to check on any parking problems. Steve is the type of developer that remains involved in his projects long after they are completed. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to own or lease a portion of any project he is building.”
