Urgent care, offices planned off 463
MADISON — An urgent care clinic, medical and accounting offices, and a law firm are planned for Mannsdale Park Drive right off Mississippi 463 in 2023.
Russ Markle, an architect, and a principal for WBA Architecture in Jackson, is representing the owner of the project, Mainland Companies, which is based in Nashville. He is designing the project along with Nico Forlenza.
The development on Mannsdale Park Drive right past St. Joseph Catholic School will consist of three buildings, Markle said.
The first will be an urgent care clinic (3600 square feet), which they hope to have finished in summer 2023.
The second and third buildings (8500 and 8100 square feet) will be medical and accounting offices and law firms, which they hope to have finished in late summer or early fall 2023, he said.
Madison alderman approved the siteplan during their Aug. 16 meeting.
Markle said the next step is to present building plans to the Madison Planning and Zoning board in September.
He said if the P&Z board approves the plans, they will recommend that the alderman approve the start of construction in November.
“The owner has owned this property for a long time, and this is his second attempt to get something developed on this site,” Markle said. “The first attempt was an assisted living facility, which did not pan out, so this is his next shot. He wants these buildings to fit with the Madison aesthetic. What we’re trying to do is extend the architectural precedent of buildings like the Beagle Bagel.”
“I’ve been told it’s been some time since there was any development in this area of town, and I think our hope is that these projects will be a springboard to further development on that side of the community,” Markle said. “These buildings will provide needed services to the residents there. It’ll be great to have an urgent care facility in that part of Madison, as I believe one does not exist there yet.”
