Ground Broken on Newport Harbor Medical Plaza

Pasadena-based C.W. Driver Companies broke ground on Newport Harbor Medical Plaza, a 26,500-square-foot, Class A medical facility in Newport Beach, CA. The project is located at 330 Old Newport Blvd., and is scheduled to be delivered in fall 2018.

C.W. Driver Companies affiliate, Driver SPG, is handling the project, along with developer Shaoulian Properties and designer Bundy-Finkel Architects.

Driver SPG’s Matt Looyra says, “The team at Driver SPG will leverage its industry expertise to bring Dr. Shaoulian’s vision to life with this project, which will accommodate everything from specialty physicians’ practices to surgical services.”

The facility will feature ocean views, and is in close proximity to Hoag Memorial Presbyterian Hospital. The office spaces will range from 2,000 to 16,500 square feet, and offer second floor patio deck amenities, two levels of below-grade parking and gurney accessible elevators.
