Work is progressing at the corner of Riverside Ave. and Main Street.
Bristol Hospital is in the process of constructing a 60,000 square foot three-story building that will house an Ambulatory Care Center.
The building is expected to employ dozens of medical professionals while servicing thousands of patients downtown.
Developer Rendina Healthcare Real Estate plans to develop a high-quality project transforming downtown Bristol and the former mall site.
According to Rendina, they have developed more than 7.25 million square feet of healthcare facilities, working with hospitals and developing projects for healthcare systems throughout the United States.
Bristol Hospital spokesperson Christopher Boyle recently told the Press “It’s really going to be the year the medical care center opens. It’s been a long time coming.”
“Construction has really been coming along. Our plan right now is to tentatively open in the late spring.”
Bristol Hospital President and CEO Kurt Barwis told the Press “All along we have said we see this building serving as a springboard for future development on the former downtown mall site,”
“If the past is any indication of the future, we do have space, ultimately, to construct another building next to it sometime. I’m really hopeful and excited that we can get to that point in a very short term.”
The City has also completed a new road to divide the remaining former mall site into smaller lots.
The new road is about 1,000 feet long and has streetscape components including trees, brick pavers, a center median made of “stamped asphalt,” decorative lights, landscaping, granite curbing, and a bus stop location.
The new road will match the current look of North Main and Main Streets. It was recently named “Hope Street”.
