The Fresno County Board of Supervisors has announced the approval to purchase an unused former hospital in Southeast Fresno.
According to a post on the county’s Facebook page, approval for the sale of 33 acres on the old University Medical Center campus at Cedar Avenue and Kings Canyon Road was made Tuesday. The purchasing party, Construction Management Group (CMG), plans to renovate the facility, which has been unused for 12 years. It will become a 800-unit housing complex — 40% of this being dedicated to affordable housing.
Finalization of the $4 million sale is expected by Christmas Eve at the anticipated close of escrow. County offices currently located on the property will remain in place as staff work to transition operations to other facilities over the next few years.
