Kettering Health said Wednesday it was not able to provide the number of jobs expected to be housed at the site. But the city’s approval is a welcome step, the applicant said.
“We’re excited to get going and turning in plans for building permits and we’ll get going as quick as we can get all of our different approvals, municipality-wise,” said John Kopilchack, development director for Synergy Building Systems, a Beavercreek firm representing the landowner.
The one-story facility is expected to open in fall 2022 and will operate under the Kettering Physician Network, according to Kettering Health.
The regional health care provider said the site will include primary care, specialty services, lab and imaging services, and educational, wellness and support programs.
The office building will feature a care team of medical providers, including physicians and advanced practice providers, Kettering Health has said.
The land is owned by Queen City Lease Management LLC, Montgomery County records show. Queen City bought it in 2017 for $9.2 million, documents state.
The site is where developer Larry Dillin proposed a $130 million plus investment before withdrawing it in January 2020, Dayton Daily News records show.
Kroger operated on the site from 1979 to 2011, when it opened a new Kroger Marketplace just south of the building, city Planner Mark Yandrick has said.
