Medical doctor Jeffrey Moskowitz is planning to build a new office on about 3.3 acres of land he recently assembled in Oviedo.
Plans submitted in the St. Johns River Water Management District show Moskowitz wants to build a single-story, 18,225-square-foot medical building on the northwest corner of Chapel Road and Mission Road.
He currently owns a dermatology clinic at 1000 W. Broadway Street. The second-floor suite is part of a larger medical workplace, built in 1997, that features tenant practices such as orthopedics and diagnostic imaging services.
Moskowitz could be looking to relocate and expand his business. Attempts to reach him for comment were unsuccessful.
Last month, Oviedo commissioners approved a series of requests submitted on behalf of Moskowitz asking to annex a portion of the property from Seminole County to the city, and to convert the property’s zoning from Seminole County Agriculture and City of Oviedo Residential to City of Oviedo Commercial. A corresponding land use amendment was also approved by commissioners.
The vacant 3.3 acres he assembled on Mission Road is mostly woodlands. The site has frontage along State Road 417 and sits about a mile north of the Oviedo Mall.
Last year, Moskowitz paid a total of $605,000 assembling the six parcels, which are located north of Chapel Road. The sellers include the Mission Road Church and Ashley Flory, who acted as a successor trustee of the James J. Files Revocable Trust.
Moskowitz wouldn’t be the first doctor to buy and develop their own medical office in Oviedo.
In 2004, a group of medical doctors, including Dr. Samuel McLeod and Dr. Christopher Caggiano, built the 22,251-square-foot Oviedo Crossing Medical Center at 7400 Red Bug Lake Rd. with the help of a $3.175 million construction loan from United Heritage Bank.
Earlier this summer, the doctors sold the medical center for $8.65 million to IRA Capital, which is headquartered in Irvine, California.
The area is also poised to feature new mixed-use development.
Not too far away, developer Marc Hagle is planning two apartment communities and a 124-room hotel at the shuttered Macy’s store at the Oviedo Mall at 1700 Oviedo Mall Boulevard.
Other developments underway, include Brand Properties' proposed mixed-use project on the southwest corner of Clara Lee Evans Way and East Mitchell Hammock Road. The developer is seeking to build an apartment community with up to 297 multifamily units and 12,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.
