SCOTTSDALE, AZ-Healthcare Realty Trust Inc. has signed a 99-year ground lease to build the $43-million Pima Medical Pavilion in Pima Center. The 180,000-sf building is the first medical spec project to be developed on land owned by the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community.

The Nashville-based REIT and Opus West Corp. of Phoenix will build a two-building complex on a 14.58-acre tract in Pima Center’s 40-acre office park, a 500,000-sf project of Main Spring Capital Group, also from Phoenix. The medical project will break ground in mid-September, with completion planned for mid-2008.

Hilla Nassiri, leasing director for the Nashville-based REIT, says leasing efforts for Pima Medical Pavilion are directed toward surgical centers, diagnostic imaging, radiology and laboratories. The project will include some retail, including a pharmacy and delicatessen. She tells that there are no letters of intent in hand or contracts are pending, but “there’s been a lot of verbal interest.”
