UNC Health Care Eastowne Medical Office Building

Chapel Hill, NC

UNC Health Care commissioned MHAworks to lead a design team to deliver the first building on a new 48-acre campus located adjacent to I-40 and 15-501. The site has been rezoned to OI-3 to allow for increased floor area and building height to support construction of Eastowne, a 153,000 square foot, six-story medical office building with an 1,100-space parking deck.

The Eastowne medical office building will be a destination site designed to provide a calming experience for its guests and an uplifting work environment for its employees. It will be an appealing addition to the experience of all traveling in and out of Chapel Hill on the 15-501 corridor. Eastowne will front 15-501 to optimize visibility and create a welcoming, urban gateway for this project and the Town. Using structured parking, the initial development will minimize its footprint and associated impervious surface area to allow a more compact, walkable campus with open and green spaces.

UNC Health Care is targeting the second quarter of 2020 to open the Eastowne medical office building.
