Otarre Pointe Takes Shape in Cayce

Lexington Medical Park – Otarre Pointe, Lexington Medical Center’s new medical office building on the 12th Street Extension in Cayce, is taking shape.

Construction is more than halfway complete. The building is scheduled to open this fall. A “green” project, Lexington Medical Center is working to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the US Green Building Council for the facility.

Lexington Medical Park – Otarre Pointe is the latest neighbor in the area, a growing corridor of economic potential and business development that includes SCANA, Amazon.com, Nephron Pharmaceuticals and the Saxe Gotha Industrial Park.

The two-story, 70,000 square foot facility will offer services for company and employee needs. There will be a Lexington Family Practice office, where patients can see a doctor, then return to work. As needed, there will be X-Ray and lab capabilities as well as other programs including physical and occupational therapy, and meeting space for wellness initiatives and trainings. Importantly, employees of the companies surrounding the new facility will be able to go there for their company-specific needs, including DOT physicals, pre-employment and annual OSHA physicals, work related injuries, drug screens and audio testing.

These architectural renderings show what Lexington Medical Park – Otarre Pointe will look like when complete this fall.

Lexington Medical Park – Otarre Pointe is expected to employ more than 60 full-time employees. The project also plans to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, employing advanced technology to conserve resources.

SCANA, with its headquarters recently re-located to the area, is working with the hospital to maintain as much of the natural land around the new clinic as possible, from preserving trees to minimizing asphalt. Lexington Medical Center is dedicated to preserving the rich historical and cultural significance of the Congaree area.

The architecture firm of Perkins + Will designed the building. Hood Construction is building it. Landscape architects from Sustainable Design Consulting, Inc. will provide landscaping.
