OHC Advisors has proposed an assisted living facility in south Miami-Dade County, near Pinecrest and Kendall.

The Miami-based company, through affiliate 11405 SW 82 Ave LLC, filed a pre-application and zoning hearing with county officials for the 3.82-acre site at 11405 S.W. 82nd Ave. and 7990 S.W. 112nd St./Killian Drive. It purchased the vacant property for $3.5 million in July.

It wants to rezone the residential site to allow 154 assisted living beds. Michael Baldwin, the president of OHC Advisors, said there would be about seven two-story buildings. This would be a luxury, residential-style assisted living facility, not a “large boxy building” with all the residents housed together.

It will be called Killian Gardens.

3702 Washington Street

Forte Capital Management bought a Hollywood medical office building adjacent to Memorial Regional Hospital South for $11 million.

The Miami Beach-based company purchased the property at 3702 Washington Street, according to Chaim Cahane, president of Forte.

A group of five doctors, including at least three with offices at the property, sold the building through an affiliate, records show. That entity bought the building in 2004 for $4.4 million.

The 43,606-square-foot building, constructed in 1995, spans nearly half an acre, according to property records.

The four-story building is 92 percent leased, said Cahane, who worked with Forte’s Dov Tepper to close the off-market deal.

The real estate investment firm plans roughly $250,000 in improvements to the vacant spaces, common areas and building exterior, allowing rent increases. Rents now are 40 percent below market rate, Cahane said.

The medical office market has proved buoyant amid the pandemic. Florida continues to be a magnet for retirees, many of whom require medical care. The Hollywood medical office building connects through a pedestrian overpass to the hospital.

There will be more places to get the medical care you need in Southwest Florida, as multiple health care systems have announced plans to add more resources in Cape Coral.

At Pine Island Road and Pondella Road in Cape Coral, Encompass Health is in the process of building a 40-bed inpatient care facility.

Down the road, Lee Health plans to expand the only hospital currently in the city.

Lee Health’s vice president of facilities and support services, Dave Kistel, said all these projects are not a coincidence.

“Cape Coral is continuing to grow, attracting a lot of new residents. The need to grow and add services is there and so we’re adding those services to support the community’s health care needs,” he explained.

That’s why Lee Health is investing $150 million to expand its hospital system.

“One of the first projects that we’re going to get started on is a six bay expansion to our existing emergency department,” Kistel said. “The next project, we will be adding 12 intensive care unit beds in Cape Coral.”

They also have plans to expand their Surfside outpatient facility and build a new building near Bimini Basin.

And if that’s not enough to help with the growth, Lee Health has plans to turn a 23-acre plot of land at SW Pine Island Road and Veterans Parkway into an innovative health care facility.

That could mean less drive time for Sara Warnecke. “Anything that’s closer to home is always a benefit when you don’t have to drive and less traffic to get there.

And provide those who live in Cape Coral, with more options.
