John C. Lincoln Hospital selected Ensemble from a group of national medical real estate developers to develop Deer Valley Medical Office II and III on their growing Deer Valley Campus. Ensemble met the challenge of breaking ground within five months of being selected to preserve permit rights that would otherwise expire. Construction commenced in June 2001 and was completed by June 2002. Ensemble re-engineered original designs to save costs, and increased rentable area and patient access.
Challenges & Solutions
The main issue with this project, as with any medical office project, was achieving the leasing goals established by the hospital and the developer. Deer Valley was a relatively new hospital for John C. Lincoln and the area was not well known. Despite these challenges, Ensemble first developed an attractive leasing package with the cooperation of the hospital and then worked every resource available, including marketing to tenants in other Ensemble buildings. The result of these efforts was a project that was already 90% leased as the first tenants moved in.
