The New City Medical Plaza would feature a 26-story tower that would include "doctors offices, a medical lab, a surgery center," according to a Los Angeles Times story about the project. It will cost an estimated $50 million, and is scheduled to open in 2019.
The one-stop health shopping center, whose developers have already sold 30 percent of its space, would be just a short walk from a border crossing that connects San Diego to Tijuana.
"A lot of our patients come from the U.S. We think it's going to be very convenient for our patients to have a place to stay, to have all the medical testing that we could use available here," Elias Bemaras, general director of stem cell treatment provider ProgenCell, told the Times. ProgenCell plans to move its operations into the new center.
