Construction has begun on the Shoppes at Morris Bridge, a new medical and retail plaza located on the west side of Morris Bridge Rd., just north of Cross Creek Blvd.
The owner, Dr. Mohamad Saleh, a neurologist and New Tampa resident, will anchor the 8,000-sq.-ft. plaza with a third location for his practice, which will specialize in both neurology and wellness.
“It’s going to be nice and elegant,” Dr. Saleh explains. “We’re going to have an outside seating area and a gazebo.”
Dr. Saleh says that his practice will take up about 3,000 square feet of the new plaza, leaving about 5,000 square feet for other tenants. Construction, which began in May, is expected to be completed by January.
“The area is growing, so it’s an open invitation to anyone who wants to move in,” Dr. Saleh says of prospective tenants. “I’ve gotten calls from dentists, and even people hoping to bring a restaurant to the plaza.”
Dr. Saleh says there will be about four additional vacant spaces once he moves his practice in, each with between 1,200-1,500 sq. ft. of space, but can vary depending upon the size of the business or businesses that end up moving into the plaza.
This will be Dr. Saleh’s third location, with additional offices in both Brandon and Brooksville. But, he says, the New Tampa area is his home.
“We’ve been busy in Brandon and thought that our niche would do well in New Tampa,” Dr. Saleh says. “I’ve gotten several calls from interested parties, so far, but I’m in no rush.”
