Fairview Health Services plans to build a clinic that would be part of a new development on the former Lockheed Martin corporate campus in Eagan.

With 42,000 square feet of space, the two-story medical office building is scheduled to open in fall 2016, said Jennifer Amundson, a Fairview spokeswoman.

The clinic will be part of the Central Park Commons development, Amundson said, that's being built near the intersection of Yankee Doodle and Pilot Knob roads.

"The space itself is being designed from the ground up to support seamless service and excellent medical care," said Sally Wahman, chief operating officer of Fairview Medical Group, in a statement announcing the development.

Fairview did not list in its Monday statement a price tag for the new clinic. In a financial statement earlier this year, however, the Minneapolis-based health system said its board approved construction in May of a medical office building in Eagan with an estimated cost of $12 million.

Central Park Commons is being developed by CSM Corp., which did not return a call seeking comment. Plans approved by the Eagan City Council earlier this year called for 434,000 square feet of retail and office space including a medical office building, a grocery store and fitness club.

"This would be the first substantial new clinic in some time," in Eagan, said Jon Hohenstein, director of community development for the city. "I think health care is a growing sector everywhere, including here."

The clinic will feature primary and urgent care as well as a pharmacy with a drive-through. Other services will include counseling, pediatric rehabilitation and sports medicine.

Fairview already operates a clinic nearby in Eagan, Amundson said, and will relocate services to the larger facility.
