Developer shares plans to create “wellness center,” starting with Kaiser Permanente
With Kaiser Permanente on the way to Frisco, real estate development company Brynn Grey Partners, Ltd. announced the care consortium is just the first of many businesses to join the town’s new wellness building.
A large portion of the 20,000 square-foot building will go to Kaiser, but there will be plenty of space that Brynn Grey hopes to fill with wellness-related businesses, such as sports medicine and therapy, complementary and alternative care, spaces for specialty medical practices or even yoga or therapy.
“There’s a greater, grander vision for that location,” said Melissa Sherburne, director of acquisitions for Brynn Grey. “The hope is to have medical providers, anything related to wellness.”
The developer will host a launch party on Tuesday, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Basecamp leasing office across from Whole Foods Market. The opening will bring health- and wellness-related business to take a tour of the site and give them a chance to mingle with locals.
While Brynn Grey hasn’t announced any new tenants yet, they say spaces are starting to fill.
“The purpose of the open house is to bring these businesses together to learn about the future of Whole Foods Frisco-Basecamp,” said Kate Clement, director of marketing and operations with Brynn Grey.
Sherburne added that another building would be constructed in the area in 2016, measuring about 26,000 square feet. The hope is that between Whole Foods and Kaiser Permanente, the area will flourish into a health and wellness hub in Frisco.
The town approved the construction of the wellness building last year, said Brodie Boilard, a public information officer with the town. “It’s bringing more people to Frisco — to go to a doctor’s appointment and maybe get lunch or go to Whole Foods.”
What is now known as Basecamp was created with the opening of Whole Foods Market in April of 2014. The area has grown to include EPIC Mountain Gear, Basecamp Wine and Beverage and the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant in the last year. Now, the county and the town are working together to revamp the Transit Center just next door.
“The whole area is just really changing and evolving,” Sherburne said. “And, the wellness center is right in the middle of it all.”
