The Virginia Eye Institute and Dermatology Associates of Virginia will be anchor tenants in a medical office building that will be built in the Reynolds Crossing mixed-used development off Glenside Drive and Forest Avenue in Henrico County.
Virginia Eye Institute will occupy the entire first floor — 23,443 square feet — and Dermatology Associates will occupy 13,372 square feet on the second floor. The remaining 9,586 square feet on the second floor is available for lease.
Construction will start in the spring with targeted completion in summer 2018. This will be the last building in the 90-acre Reynolds Crossing, closing out a 14-year project by Henrico-based Reynolds Development Group.
Also underway in Reynolds Crossing is the development of a two-acre site for additional retail fronting Forest Avenue. This piece is being developed by The Wilton Cos., a Henrico real estate company that bought the parcel last year from Reynolds Development. It is scheduled to be completed late this year.
The retail development would be next to the existing Shoppes at Reynolds Crossing that was completed two years ago. Tenants there include Starbucks, Chipotle and Saladworks.
“Foremost in our mind is to design an efficient facility that results in an outstanding patient experience,” said Brad Smith, CEO of the Virginia Eye Institute. The Reynolds Crossing location will feature an array of eye care services provided by ophthalmologists and optometrists, along with a full service retail optical shop.
The Virginia Eye Institute has eight locations in the Richmond area. Dermatology Associates has four locations in the area.
Rachel Downey, practice administrator with Dermatology Associates, said the venture with Virginia Eye Institute and Reynolds Development will allow the company to meet growing demand for dermatology services.
Richmond-based Evolve Architecture is the architect. Taylor & Parrish Construction of Richmond is the general contractor and Baltimore-based RK&K Engineering, with an office in Richmond, is the civil engineer.
CBRE|Richmond, a commercial real estate firm in Henrico, is handling the leasing and marketing for the building.
Tenants in Reynolds Crossing include Altria Group Inc., CBRE|Richmond, Sheltering Arms, First Tennessee Bank, Bon Secours Richmond Health System, Virginia Urology, Virginia Cancer Institute and The Westin Richmond. A Walmart supercenter also is part of the development.
