The Cameron Village building that currently houses the U.S. Postal Service is set to be turned into new offices for WakeMed.
WakeMed announced Tuesday that it would be redeveloping the mid-century building at 505 Oberlin Road into a medical office building.
The announcement comes weeks after the building’s owner, York Properties, said the building, built in 1962, would be getting major upgrades. The building’s current tenants, including the Postal Service will all be leaving the building at some point in the future, York Properties said last month.
The building will primarily be used by WakeMed Physician Practices, and the facility is slated to open in mid-2020.
“Our presence into this area aligns with WakeMed’s mission and our commitment to bring accessible health care resources close to home,” said Tom Cavender, vice president of facilities and construction for WakeMed, in a statement.
“A Raleigh landmark, Cameron Village is a great example of a neighborhood transitioning to a walkable community, where essential services including schools, offices, shopping, parks, public transportation — and now health care — will be readily available.”
