Final interior finishings are being done on the first building in the Hero Way medical office development located at the southwest corner of Hero Way and Mel Mathis Boulevard in Leander, ahead of that building’s opening.

The 20,000-square-foot, one-story building—developed by b3 Commercial—will house Austin Gastroenterology’s endoscopy center and clinic. Building features may include a patient drop-off area, a calming lobby, oversized elevators and other interior upgrades, said Brian Novy, a broker and minority owner of the development.

Novy said the Hero Way medical office is in a “great location” because it is near the San Gabriel Campus of Austin Community College, the future Northline development and the upcoming St. David’s HealthCare Leander hospital.

“There’s a big demand and need for health care out in Leander,” he said.

Building 2 of the development will be a 27,000-square-foot medical or office building.

While the site for Building 2 is ready, construction has not yet started as the development’s owners are seeking to secure a tenant. Novy said Building 2 could be delivered within a year.
