The groundbreaking was a decade in the making.
On Tuesday, a boxed frame collected ceremonial concrete that was churned and smoothed. The inaugural foundation symbolizes the start of construction of Care Point Health and Wellness Center, which will stretch along an entire city block at South Monroe and Adams streets and Magnolia Drive. For the next year, the four-acre site will be a construction zone as the largest project on Tallahassee’s south side in more than a decade takes shape.
The Care Point Health and Wellness Center is an $11-million, 27,000 square-foot medical facility designed to be a central place for a host of medical services. Its location is designed to serve downtown employees, south side residents and those living as far as Southwood, Crawfordville and Woodville.
