Miller-Valentine Announces 38,000-Square-Foot, Class-A Medical-Office Condominiums Near Downtown Columbia

October 19, 2007

COLUMBIA, SC – October 19, 2007 –  Miller-Valentine plans to construct a 38,000-square-foot, Class-A, medical-office condominium in Park Central. 

Park Central, on Sunset Drive near Highway 277, is a master-planned, professional medical park strategically located near the Palmetto Health Richland Campus, the University of South Carolina School of Medicine and Columbia’s Central Business District (CBD).  Miller-Valentine will serve as lead developer on the 38,000-square-foot professional office condominium building.  The condominiums, offering Class-A medical and office space for sale or lease, range from 2,000 to 38,000 square feet.

NAI Avant, the Park’s land developer, will be a participating partner and exclusive marketing agent.  According to Todd Avant, NAI Avant Principal, “Not only have sites for quality medical or office development become virtually non-existent in the CBD and surrounding area, but quality buildings for purchase as well.  We are excited about working with Miller-Valentine to  help satisfy the strong demand for medical and office ownership opportunities.”  Park Central’s master plan includes approximately 16 acres of individual sites for sale with a primary focus on medical and professional uses.  The balance of the property, comprised of approximately eight acres reserved as green space with mature hardwoods, adds to the park-like feel.  “With the Park nearing completion, we already have six of the eight total sites sold or under contract,” said Avant.

A “ribbon cutting” event celebrating the “grand opening” of Park Central and Columbia Nephrology’s 32,000-square-foot medical-office building will be held on October 30th.
