Editor's note: This article has been updated with details on where the new building will be located on the campus.

Construction kicked off in early August on a new four-story, 110,374-square-foot medical office building that will be located on the HCA Houston Healthcare North Cypress Campus at the intersection of Huffmeister Road and Hwy. 290 in Cypress.

The project is being built by Denver-based NexCore Group, a health care real estate developer. It will join the HCA Houston Healthcare North Cypress Hospital at the site as well as another existing medical office building.

The development will span different medical disciplines and potentially include an outpatient endoscopy suite and an ambulatory surgery center, according to an Aug. 5 press release. Clinical office space will be available for independent specialty physicians, including those in general surgery, urology, gastroenterology, pulmonology, nephrology, family practice, ophthalmology, orthopedics, cardiology and podiatry.

The new building will be located on the west side of Huffmeister Road, north of an existing parking garage and where a street-level parking lot currently exists. Plans for the new building also include 364 parking spaces surrounding it, according to a NexCore site plan.

The building is being developed in partnership with area physicians, who will own and manage it upon completion, according to the release. Those involved with the building's development formed a partnership board of managers, which includes local physicians in Cy-Fair.

"There has been a tradition of physician ownership on the North Cypress campus for over a decade. The physician response to the opportunity to once again own and manage their own office building was incredible," said Dr. David Mack, a board member and an orthopedic surgeon in Cypress.

Jim Brown, CEO of the nearby HCA hospital, said he was excited to bring the project to the North Cypress campus.

"This development will foster our ongoing growth for many years to come," he said in a statement. "I am appreciative of our physician leaders, NexCore and HCA leadership for helping bring this project to fruition."

The new center is slated to open Oct. 1, 2021.
