The new Kaiser Permanente medical hub planned in Woodbridge will receive a public hearing before the Prince William Board of County Supervisors on March 19.

The building and parking garage planned at 13285 Minnieville Road is expected to add some 185 jobs to those currently working at the existing facility at Potomac Mills.

The company is asking to amend permits for the long-vacant site to add an additional 10 feet to the height of the office building and allow a total of 335,000 square feet of office space. The site is currently permitted for a little more than 300,000 square feet of office space and 55,000 square feet of retail space.

The project, named the South NoVa Hub, received planning commission approval earlier this month, contingent on a review of traffic light plans and proposed landscaping along Minnieville Road.

The new building will be up to six stories tall and the 1,000-space parking garage is expected to have seven levels, with one underground.

The site is expected to include a conference center with four rooms available for public use after hours, and there will be a “health park” with medication areas and amenities available to the public.

Woodbridge resident Eileen Sheridan, who lives nearby, told the planning commission that she was happy that Kaiser was coming to the large, vacant lot on Minnieville.

“I just want to point out the size of this Kaiser facility, compared to anything that is on Minnieville Road now,” Sheridan said.
