Colliers' Gary Montour represented Jacksonville University in the leasing of 19,000± SF former Virginia College space

Jacksonville University will convert space into a Healthcare Simulation Center.

Construction is underway.

The former Virginia College building at 5940 Beach Blvd will become the new Jacksonville University Healthcare Simulation Center. Currently, a simulation center at the university’s Arlington campus at 2800 University Blvd. N. trains JU students. The community center will serve professionals from hospitals and other health care organizations.


It will use high-tech simulator manikins, a prevalent practice in health-care training, so that procedures can be practiced before needed on a patient. The training can be tailored to the needs of the organization seeking it.

The private Virginia College closed at year-end 2018. Greyhawke Capital Advisors of Greenwich, Connecticut, acquired the property in 2011 through Fudo Capital LLC. The building was developed in 1979 as an Albertsons grocery store on 5.81 acres.
