STAMFORD — DaVita, the largest U.S. provider of kidney-care services, plans to open a kidney-dialysis center next year in Stamford, the company and its local landlord have confirmed.
The Denver-based firm has leased 11,246 square feet at 260 Long Ridge Road for a clinic with 15 hemodialysis chairs. It plans to launch sometime in 2020.
DaVita serves more than 200,000 dialysis patients and employs some 55,000 across the U.S., according to its website.
“DaVita is proud to bring our expertise in kidney care to the Stamford community,” DaVita division vice president Caroline Pierce said in a statement.
With DaVita’s arrival, about 84,000 square feet — or about 40 percent of the total — are leased at 260 Long Ridge.
The Yale New Haven Health system leases about 65,700 square feet on the second floor for outpatient services and Reproductive Medicine Associates of CT leases around 7,500 square feet on the first floor.
Another 119,000 square feet are still available.
260 Long Ridge stands next to the Stamford Health system’s outpatient center at 292 Long Ridge Road.
Building and Land Technology, the landlord of 260 Long Ridge, has one of the largest office portfolios in southwestern Connecticut and also has a large collection of residential properties, including the Harbor Point complex that it developed in Stamford’s South End.
BLT’s other office properties in Stamford include the downtown 200 Elm St.-695 Elm St.; the under-construction headquarters of Charter Communications, at 406 Washington Blvd; and 1 Elmcroft Road, 100 Washington Blvd., and 333 Ludlow St., in the South End.
“We’re excited about the continued diversification of companies moving into our buildings and their contributions to the long-term health of the local Connecticut economy,” BLT Chief Operating Officer Ted Ferrarone said in a statement. “Our team has been hard at work in Stamford and Norwalk creating the ecosystem for these new corporate entrants to thrive.”
