PITTSBURGH, May 4, 2021 — JLL is pleased to announce that the General Services Administration has awarded Summit Smith Development a long-term lease for a new, 64,000 square-foot outpatient clinic for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Summit Smith Development will develop the project on a 6.5-acre site on the eastern side of the Monroeville Mall campus. JLL Vice President of Retail Brokerage Jared Imperatore led the site selection efforts.

The new state-of-the-art facility will improve veterans’ access to primary and specialty outpatient services and reduce drive times for many veterans in the East Pittsburgh area. It will also be home to several VA departments including primary care, physical therapy, an eye clinic and a specialty clinic.

“As a resident of the Pittsburgh area, I am excited to combine our healthcare expertise with this premier location to improve access to high-quality outpatient healthcare for the region’s veteran community,” said Sean Roberts, Vice President of Summit Smith Development.

The development team worked closely with the owner of Monroeville Mall, CBL Properties, to bring the project to the Monroeville Mall campus. The location provides easy access to Interstate 376, Interstate 76, Route 22 and Route 48. The new facility will offer staff and visitors close proximity to an array of retail and restaurants options, as well.

“We’re excited to be working with Summit Smith Development on this project,” Imperatore said. “With their longstanding experience working with the VA, the new outpatient center will be an excellent facility for veterans looking for first-class care in the Greater Pittsburgh region.”

The project represents Summit Smith Development’s ninth VA Outpatient Clinic project. The company has previously developed VA outpatient facilities in Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Montana, North Carolina and Wisconsin. Construction of the project is expected to begin in fall 2021, with substantial completion in 2023. VA anticipates occupancy and opening to the community will follow in early 2024.
