The Gilbert Planning Commission has recommended rezoning a five-acre parcel on the northwest corner of Rome and Melrose streets for a three-story, 96-bed orthopedic skilled nursing facility of up to 80KSF.
The Center at Val Vista is conveniently located a couple of blocks from Mercy Gilbert Medical Center.
Co-owner Steve Dobias said he couldn’t yet put a construction cost on the Gilbert project, which could break ground in July or August with a yearlong construction schedule. Dobias declined to name the owners, saying they are up to 100 people, many of whom are local.
The Gilbert project is the second one in metro Phoenix for the owners; another rehab facility is being built in Glendale at 7201 W. Camino San Xavier Ave., and is expected to be occupied in July or August.
The Center at Arrowhead in Glendale was designed by H+L Architecture, the civil engineer was Atwell, the landscape architect was Sonny Moric with smART Development, and the GC is Kitchell.
