Lake: City Leaders Hopeful for Medical Hub

City leaders in Leesburg hope the 55 acres of wooded land along Lake Harris will become the next “medical hub.” According to media reports, “Venetian Isles is the tentative name of the development. This is a $40 million project,” said Robert Sargent with the City of Leesburg. In the hands of city leaders, the plans call for the construction of assisted living facilities, doctor’s offices, a pharmacy and residential areas. It is situated across the street from Leesburg Regional Medical Center, where a new urgent care clinic and corporate offices are under construction. Leesburg officials said they hope construction can start in 2014.
