Builders have started work on a new building complex designed to attract more medical professionals to establish offices in Lakewood.
The construction is taking place on Airport Road along Route 70 near where several buildings with doctors’ offices, labs, and therapists already exist.
The construction is a project of Cedar Bridge Properties LLC. The company said that it hopes the buildings will “significantly improve the lives of thousands of families over the years by attracting prestigious and expert specialists in the medical arts to the region.”
The groundbreaking took place last week for the 82,000 square-foot structure. It was attended by members of the Lakewood Industrial Commission, Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus Foundation; Rabbi Yehuda Kaszirer, executive director of Bikur Cholim of Lakewood and Yehuda Shvarzblat, captain of the Lakewood Volunteer First Aid.
