An orthopedic group will anchor a new 40,000-square-foot medical office building in Gloucester County, following a lease arranged by Markeim Chalmers.
Representing both parties, Markeim Chalmers said it negotiated the long-term lease between The Rothman Institute and The Atkins Cos., the developer of a 35-acre mixed-use project in Washington Township. The practice will occupy 20,000 square feet at a new two-story development within Washington Township Town Center, which sits between Virtua Health & Wellness Center and Kennedy University Hospital.
The space will be delivered by January 2018. Scott Martin, senior vice president with Cherry Hill-based Markeim Chalmers, handled the assignment.
The mixed-use project by Atkins, a West Orange-based firm, also features luxury condos and apartments, retail and restaurants. The Philadelphia-based Rothman Institute, one of the largest independent orthopedic groups in the country, selected the new site when it outgrew the operator’s current facility on Greentree Road in Washington Township.
“This is an exciting time for Washington Township as is furthers its transformation into a hub for leading healthcare providers in South Jersey, including The Rothman Institute’s continued growth and Kennedy Hospital’s announced $225 million expansion to add a seven-story tower,” Martin said. “The development of Washington Square Town Center will be a great addition bringing new jobs and health care services to the region.”
