The Presbyterian Hospital Matthews area may get a new medical office park. Browder Engineering's Taney Browder recently presented a plan and asked for zoning that would allow a three-story office building and 15 single-story offices off Matthews Township Parkway.The zoning change would affect 10.5 acres on the parkway between the hospital and Independence Pointe Parkway. It includes the existing Presbyterian Urgent Care center, which would remain unchanged.
The proposed three-story building would go up next to urgent care, with the 15 other buildings clustered in back. Browder said they would look similar to offices at N.C. 51 and Sam Newell Road.
Town staff suggests a second access point by connecting to the Presbyterian Hospital parking lot, but Browder said there would be topographical challenges and a loss of parking.
The public hearing was April 11, and Town Board is scheduled to vote May 9.
