Work begins on new office park
Builder expects growth even without brigade
simmons looks over plans
Robert Simmons, DDS, shows the plans to city and chamber officials.
Another office park is going up in Hinesville — more proof news of the 5th BCT’s absence on Fort Stewart may not hurt growth in Liberty County.
Dr. Robert Simmons, an area dentist, is building Victory Village, a four-building complex he hopes to lease to other medical professionals.
“In anticipation with the troops coming, even though the 5th brigade is not coming right now, we feel like the growth is going to be here,” Simmons said of the project he and his wife planned about three years ago.
He wants local, full-time specialty doctors so residents won’t have to work their schedules around doctors who are available only once or twice a week.
“Hinesville is probably 15 doctors short as far as demographics is concerned,” Simmons said.
The land already has been cleared and the foundation is ready to be laid for the 5,000-square-foot park.
The three-phase project will be completed later this year and will include a pond.
When it’s finished, Victory Village will be a mix of buildings facing Gen. Stewart Way and South Main Street, according to Brandy Williams of Seabolt Brokers.
“That was their intention  — keep the natural setting,” Williams said.
Simmons’ current office is on the corner of Main Street and Gen. Stewart.
The building will have large windows because Simmons said they put patients at ease, allowing them to soak in the scenery while having dental work done.
“So, whenever they built these buildings, they also wanted to let in a lot of sunlight in, have a lot of greenery around and do a pretty landscape design,” Williams said.
The design is supposed to be simple.
“It’ll be very quaint,” Williams said. “We’re hoping the passion for what we’re doing is what people notice when everything comes in place.”
