Add another proposal to the quickly growing list of major development ambitions cropping up along Atlanta’s northern Interstate 285 Perimeter.

A block from Northside Hospital’s main Sandy Springs campus, a new medical care-focused compound is in the works—and by the same family that helped transform a significant swath of the Perimeter area into Pill Hill, a hub that includes Northside, Emory Saint Joseph’s, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Glenpoint, as it’s called, is projected to span some 500,000 square feet and include medical offices, a hotel, and an assisted living facility, according to Bisnow.

It’s a proposal by Richmond Honan Development and Acquisitions, founded by Lea Richmond III, son of Dr. Lea Richmond, who spearheaded efforts to buy the land that would become Northside’s campus.

The project is slated to rise near the meeting point of I-285 and Ga. Highway 400 and offer around 112,000 square feet of office space, spread between two towers and linked by an elevated pedestrian bridge.

There would also be a retail component, according to the firm’s website, although the scale of that facet is not yet known.

Glenpoint is one of many new medical office projects metro Atlanta has tallied in recent years, as Bisnow points out.

The project will join the ranks of 50 other medical office properties—spanning 2.5 million square feet and valued at nearly $1 billion worth of investment—that were built in the region between 2014 and 2018, the publication reports.

The Glenpoint development is projected to break ground in late 2019, and it could reportedly be complete the following year.
