Public Information Meeting

Lee Health Village at Coconut Point

Representatives for Lee Memorial Health System presented details of the proposed Lee Health Village at Coconut Point.

healthThe presentation included features of the 146,545 square foot medical facility, which will include a two-story clinic, an outpatient surgery center and a rehab center.

The facility will be located on approximately 31 acres just south of Coconut Road, with the front entrance on Via Coconut Point and back entrance off of Pelican Colony Blvd., which will be used by ambulances and service vehicles.

Future plans may include a four-story building and helicopter pad if the state issues a certificate of need.

The enhanced landscaping plans call for over 50 species of plants, and there will be small rustic gardens, gathering places and multimodal pathways.   The parking area adjacent to the clinic entrance will be available for art fairs and/or farmers markets on weekends.

Lee Memorial representatives have presented their initial plans to the neighboring communities of Pelican Landing, The Colony, Mirosal, Spring Run, Shadow Wood and the Residences at Coconut Point, and had their second review earlier this day with the Agency for Health Care Administration.

Construction of the Lee Health Village is proposed to start in the spring of 2017 and be open for business by mid-2018.

The buildings will be four stories, with three residential floors over ground floor parking.  There will be two elevators in each building.  The buildings will be painted in seven different colors, and the roads and sidewalks will be paver stone.

Wallace pointed out that the roof pitch on the liner buildings has been raised to be more pronounced and described the Genova entry sign, which will be slate.
