Warsaw Board of Public Works and Safety entered into a development agreement between the city and Parkview Health Systems during Friday morning’s meeting.
The agreement states Parkview will construct a four-floor building of approximately 86,000 square feet along with landscaping and parking on the property. The construction value is estimated to be approximately $20 million and will house physician offices, rehabilitation, laboratory, imaging and diagnostic services, unfinished basement and emergency services.
Perhaps the biggest part of the agreement is Parkview agrees to pay the city of Warsaw $600,000 to improve the portion of Mariners Drive from Husky Trail to the Parkview/YMCA campus. The agreement also notes Parkview will participate in funding of any future extension of Mariners Drive north to CR 200N. Improvements to Mariner’s Drive are to be completed no later than Dec. 31, 2015.
The agreement states the city commits to continue efforts and participation in analysis by the Indiana Department of Transportation and the Michiana Area Council of Government in review of a new signalized intersection at US 30 in the vicinity of the property, including a traffic impact study.
