Plan for medical offices gets Pine supervisors' OK
Expect physicians' offices to continue to multiply in Pine at Stonewood Commons IV, a new, four-story office building set for construction behind Bronson's Beer Distributor on the west side of Route 19.
Developer John Baun of Bradford Woods plans to build the 37,000-square-foot building on 2.1 acres that he owns at Bradford Road and Old Perry Highway.
Pine supervisors approved Baun's land development plans at their Jan. 7 meeting.
The new office building will resemble other Stonewood buildings on the east side Route 19, and incorporate “cedar wood, a lot of glass and stone,” said Baun. “It'll be visible from Route 19.”
Baun developed the Stonewood East buildings on Route 19, including the Western Pennsylvania Surgery Center and Atria's restaurant.
He plans to offer eight to 12 suites in Stonewood Commons IV.
He expects to welcome a number of medical professionals into the building.
“We have a number of tenants that we have talked to. We're not making any announcements until the deals are done,” Baun said. “I really think with the surgery center and new medical mall, there will be medical people.”
Baun attributed the influx of medical professionals and health care ventures along Route 19 in Pine to the area's affluent demographics.
“You have the highest concentration of wealth and household income in all of Pittsburgh,” Baun said. “You have a lot of people that want the specialty services. They want them close and convenient.” ,
Baun said he practically can walk from his home to see any medical specialist he might need.
“You have people like fertility doctors, pain management doctors, cardiologists ... You name it.
“Every specialty is right in this corridor,” Baun said.
