Bronson Healthcare Group
KALAMAZOO, MI - Bronson Healthcare Group has actually bought and certainly will redevelop the previous Kalamazoo Gazette newspaper building and an adjacent building in downtown Kalamazoo.
The health system shut the deal April 24 buying the three-story, 131, 419-square-foot former newsprint building, the one-story, 5, 200-square-foot previous Business Review western Michigan mag building, and an adjacent parking area.
The offer had been appreciated at $2.2 million.
Both structures have already been unused since February 2012 when MLive Media Group established and moved the Gazette one block north to 306 S. Kalamazoo Mall. MLive Media Group posts the Kalamazoo Gazette, seven various other Michigan periodicals and MLive.com.
Bronson officials said the medical team is getting the properties in the region of its downtown university being have options to expand. Bronson will not yet have a strategy for how the properties will undoubtedly be made use of.
The structures tend to be directly across John Street from Bronson Methodist Hospital's North Pavilion, also Bronson's business headquarters at 301 John St., which will be found in the initial head office building for The Upjohn Co.
"getting properties in downtown Kalamazoo just like the Upjohn Company head office building in 2005 and now the Kalamazoo Gazette building, gives Bronson freedom to accommodate development by moving some administrative and clinical help features into adjacent structures as patient attention places increase, " the medical team stated in a prepared statement. "While Bronson doesn't have instant plans for redeveloping the Kalamazoo Gazette building, the room will today be included into the healthcare system's property stock therefore it are activated when specific uses are identified."
Michael Way, Bronson Healthcare's senior vice president for offer chain, facilities and property, said the former magazine building is probably to be used for non-clinical and medical center business uses.
"Bronson's strategic facility plan is continually evolving even as we make an effort to achieve the absolute most efficient use of room on our hospital campuses, " Way stated. "with additional clients than in the past choosing Bronson for attention, you should retain capacity in your hospital facilities to grow medical features, when required."
