The Kingston Economic Development Corporation (KEDCO) has announced that the Clermont Group has secured the acquisition rights of 14 acres of prime development land in the St. Lawrence Business Park on Highway 15 in Kingston’s east-end
The Clermont Group, in conjunction with a group of medical professionals, plans to develop the 14-acre site for an 80,000 sq. ft. medical campus, KEDCO said in a news release. The campus development will offer medical professionals the opportunity to purchase their own building space within the medical campus.
“We are extremely excited about this new development and hope the medical professional community is as well. Our vision for the medical campus is to create a hub for Kingston residents and the region to access specialized and ancillary care. Services could include specialist offices and consults, medical procedures, after-hours clinics, labs, and a pharmacy,” said Clermont Group president Matthew Derbyshire.
Acting KEDCO CEO Donna Gillespie said in the announcement: “It has been great to see the level of new development take place in the city’s east side over the past five years, bringing a variety of new services and adding many new jobs. We are very pleased to see that further growth in the area is taking place, especially in the healthcare sector, which furthers Kingston’s deserved reputation as a regional centre of excellence. Healthcare is a significant and growing sector for Kingston and this new medical campus brings great opportunity for non-emergency based services in private sector facilities.”
Construction is scheduled to begin early in 2016.
