Industrial Space Morphs Into Pharmacy
DaVita RX, a full-service pharmacy that targets kidney patients, is building out 51,814 square feet of industrial space at 2252 Commerce Park Drive in Southridge Commerce Park, Orlando’s premier business distribution location. The pharmacy chose CBRE to lead the charge.
“Our goal is to support every aspect of DaVita Rx’s expansion,” says Greg Main-Baillie, managing director of Project Management for CBRE in Florida. “It is clear that the project management steps we are taking in the build out of the new facility will allow DaVita Rx to be more efficient and provide care for more patients.”
The project includes build out of the space and the transition from their current facility, also located on Commerce Park Drive. A specialty conveyor system used to sort, package, and distribute pharmaceutical supplies for patients are part of the plans.
In addition to filling prescriptions, the facility will house front-office capabilities, which will allow DaVita to expand its pharmacy and customer service operations. Completion and occupancy of the new space is slated for March, 2014.
Along with Main-Baillie, CBRE’s Rick Wilson, will manage the build out and Davita Rx’s relocation.
