A new building in Jupiter with more than 230,000 square feet of space is nearly completed but apparently won’t open in the near future.

The owner of the building says the municipal government of Jupiter won’t issue a certificate of occupancy for the property unless it operates as a research facility and a medical center as well as a senior living facility.

The $75 million building, called the Institute for Healthy Living, is designed to house and rehabilitate senior citizens and to provide space for research activity and medical treatment.

But without agreements to conduct research or treat patients there, the town of Jupiter won’t allow the building to open, according to the property’s owner, ARHC NVJUPFL01 LLC, which is affiliated with AR-Global in New York.

The 235,445-square-foot building has a 129-bed rehabilitation center, a 62-bed assisted-living section and a 30-bed section for people with brain disorders, plus unfinished space for clinical research.

The town of Jupiter approved construction of the building on land reserved for activity involving life sciences, Jim Kuretski, a member of the town council, told the Palm Beach Post.

Construction delays, however, have blocked efforts by ARHC to obtain affiliation agreements to conduct research and provide medical treatment at the company’s nearly finished building in Jupiter. In May, the developer of the building, Palm Health Partners, informed ARHC that it was halting construction.

The building is located near the Florida campus of the Scripps Research Institute, which has terminated plans to become a research affiliate of the Institute for Healthy Living.

The Jupiter Medical Center also has refused to go forward with an agreement to affiliate with the Institute for Healthy Living.

ARHC is trying to convince town council members to terminate their requirement that the company obtain agreements with a research organization and a medical care provider before opening.

The town council is expected to consider those requests in October. [Palm Beach Post]Mike Seemuth
