The Lovelace Medical Group has announced plans to build an expansion to an existing two-story clinic it operates in north Albuquerque.
That clinic is located at the intersection of Jefferson Street and Osuna Road NE in what is called Independence Square, and was itself opened just over two years ago.
According to Lovelace officials, the expansion will measure just over 26,300 square feet, adding to an existing facility footprint of 43,200 square feet.
The new space will particularly provide more room for primary care operations.
Upon completion in 2017, the initial Lovelace structure was praised for its built-in energy efficiency features, including LED fixtures, occupancy sensors, and an energy recovery water source heat pump system.
The Lovelace Medical Group currently operates nearly a dozen medical facilities in central and northern New Mexico.
The developer for the Independence Square site is the Albuquerque-based Argus Investment Realty, a firm specializing in medical real estate projects.
