UAB Plans Major Project in Hoover Mixed-Use Development

The University of Alabama at Birmingham Heath System has purchased property in Hoover’s Stadium Trace Village development with plans for a new medical office building.

UAB plans to build a 39,000-square-foot facility to house a variety of medical services, including primary care, oral surgery, OB/GYN services and other specialties. According to public records, UAB purchased the property for $1.95 million from Broad Metro LLC.

Stadium Trace Village, a mixed-use development off Alabama 150 and Stadium Trace Parkway at Interstate 459, is being developed by Broad Metro.

The project – one of our Commercial Real Estate Deals of the Year – will include restaurants, hotel, specialty retail and a grocery store on a 40-acre development, as we’ve previously noted.

The UAB clinic in Hoover at 2321 Alabama 150 will move to the new location when it opens. Construction is expected to begin in early 2019 and open in early 2020.

“We are committed to providing outstanding health care to Alabamians,” said Will Ferniany, CEO of the UAB Health System. “To achieve that aim, we recognize the need to bring our expertise and our outstanding facilities to the places where people work and live. The Hoover medical office building continues our efforts to make it easier for residents of Alabama, especially west Jefferson County, to access the world class care available from UAB Medicine.”

William Kadish, marketing director for Broad Metro, said UAB’s decision to locate in Stadium Trace Village is a giant step forward in the company’s plan to create an enduring development.

“Exceptional health care is vital to the quality of life in all great communities,” Kadish said.

Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato said the project will have a significant impact.

“The UAB/Medical West freestanding emergency department has already added immeasurably to the quality of life for Hoover residents, and we are confident that the new clinic will have an even greater impact,” he said.
