State-of-the-art redevelopment further underlines Stirling Properties’ expertise in healthcare real estate services.
This past week, Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport and Stirling Properties celebrated the grand opening of Ochsner LSU Health – Viking Drive in Bossier City, Louisiana.
This 25,080-square-foot Multispecialty Clinic, located at 4481 Viking Drive, features primary care, sports medicine, orthopedic and neurosurgery clinics.
In December 2020, a Stirling Properties affiliate acquired the property, which was previously a retail store, and subsequently redeveloped it into its current condition as a Multispecialty Clinic. Stirling Properties was the project developer; WHLC was the architect; Duplantis Design Group was the Civil Engineer; and Brasfield & Gorrie was the general contractor. Total project costs were roughly $10.7 million. Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport is the sole tenant at this location and is now uniquely positioned in this market for years to come, using this facility as a springboard for future growth in the Bossier market.
The Ochsner LSU Health – Viking Drive redevelopment underlines Stirling Properties’ expertise in healthcare real estate services. “There is increased demand for healthcare real estate services. We’ve developed a team of industry experts to provide a comprehensive, holistic approach based on sound real estate fundamentals for our healthcare partners to deliver high-quality products such as Ochsner LSU Health – Viking Drive,” said Townsend Underhill, President of Development with Stirling Properties. “We are proud to help bring first-class healthcare to our local neighborhoods while also facilitating job creation, tax revenue, economic development and infrastructure improvements.”
Stirling Properties currently has over 2 million square feet of projects under development/redevelopment, totaling nearly $196 million—of which almost half is in the healthcare sector. Other notable healthcare projects include facilities management of St. Mary’s Medical Center in Shreveport; the acquisition and redevelopment of the former Louisiana Heart Hospital in Lacombe; the development of four Ochsner Kidney Care Clinics in the Greater New Orleans Area; the development of St. Tammany Cancer Center in Covington; and the development of Ochsner Medical Complex – The Grove in Baton Rouge, to name a few.
