Tabor Orthopedics to Renovate Newly Purchased Office Building

Tabor Orthopedics has filed a $1.5 million permit application with the city-county Office of Construction Code Enforcement to remodel its recently acquired property at 1244 Primacy Parkway in the Quince/Ridgeway area of East Memphis.

Primacy Partners LLC – whose principal is Tabor orthopedic surgeon Dr. Owen B. Tabor Jr. – bought the medical office building in February for $2.4 million from State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. of Bloomington, Ill.

Tabor Orthopedics had been looking for a new building since outgrowing its current space on the sixth floor of a medical building on the Saint Francis Hospital campus at 6005 Park Ave., a clinic employee said.

The clinic had been operating there since Dr. Owen Tabor Sr. formed the clinic in 1998. As Tabor Orthopedics grew from a one-doctor practice to a five-doctor practice with more staff, the need for a larger space became apparent.

In addition to being larger, the Primacy Parkway location allows for easier access and convenience for patients.

The one-story, 16,772-square-foot building, completed in 1991, sits on 2.51 acres on the east side of Primacy Parkway, which runs between Park Avenue and Ridgeway Road. The Shelby County Assessor of Property’s 2009 appraisal is $2.2 million.

Tabor Orthopedics also operates an office at 2996 Kate Bond Road in Bartlett.
