CULLINAN PROPERTIES ANNOUNCES COMPLETION OF $100 MILLION VA MENTAL HEALTH CLINIC IN TAMPA, FL
State-of-the-art facility will begin seeing patients in January 2024
(Peoria, IL – August 29, 2023) – Cullinan Properties is pleased to announce the completion of the 150,000 SF U.S. Tampa Veterans Affairs (VA) Mental Health Clinic in Temple Terrace, FL (Tampa MSA). The General Services Administration (GSA), in conjunction with the Department of Veterans Affairs, selected the project team consisting of developer Cullinan Properties, general contractor Hoar Construction, architecture and design firm Leo A Daly and facility manager Lincoln Harris. The $100 million project broke ground in late 2021 and will begin seeing patients in January 2024.
Conveniently located near I-75 and accessed from HWY 301, the two-story facility sits on approximately 20 acres of land. It replaces and consolidates services provided at three local hospitals into one location. The building includes a 120,000 SF clinic with 265 consult rooms, 60 patient rooms, an activities courtyard, a full-service kitchen and dining room and a social activities room. The design creates a warm, welcoming and therapeutic atmosphere that supports healing by promoting socialization and connection to community. The facility has a two-globes Green Globes rating, which is above the one-globe requirement for all VA facilities. This is an important designation that measures the environmental sustainability, health and wellness of commercial real estate projects. The project stayed on schedule and was delivered to the GSA two weeks early.
“We are first and foremost honored to have been chosen as the developer of this state-of-the-art facility that provides care convenience for our more than deserving veterans,” Stephanie Webster, Senior Vice President, Director of Development for Cullinan Properties stated. “The Cullinan team and our partners worked tirelessly to deliver a facility that will meet the needs of patients for decades to come.”

The company has specific experience working with the Department of Veterans Affairs having developed the 275,000 SF Austin VA Outpatient Clinic located in Austin, TX, which opened in 2013. Cullinan also developed the 21,000 SF McLean County VA Outpatient Clinic in Bloomington, IL and Peoria IL VET Center in Peoria, IL.
Cullinan Properties’ CEO Matthew Beverly said, “We are proud to be part of the Tampa VA Mental Health Clinic project team as we continue to seek growth opportunities in the southern and southeastern areas of the country.
