Building addition for DaVita recommended for approval

SALISBURY — The Salisbury Planning Board has recommended approval of a building addition for the DaVita Medical Clinic at 111 Dorsett Drive.

Hill Gray Seven, LLC, a commercial real estate group, petitioned the city to amend the land development ordinance and district map to rezone about 2.1 acres on the property to allow for a 2,619-square-foot building addition.

The request is to amend the existing conditional district overlay to add the square footage to the building.

The addition includes a 1,962-square-foot addition on the west side of the building and a 657-square-foot addition at the rear.

DaVita Medical Clinic provides dialysis for individuals with chronic kidney failure and end-stage renal disease.

Allan Hill, chief civil engineer with Triad Design Group and representative of Hill Gray Seven, said the expansion was requested because DaVita and Hill Gray Seven received a certificate of need from the state for more treatment areas at DaVita.

“The larger expansion … will allow us to construct nine additional treatment areas within the building,” Hill said.

Hill said the expansion at the rear of the building will be a storage area for the new expansion on the side of the building. It will also serve as storage for the existing building, which Hill said will open up some space for even more treatment areas.

Board member Shaun Brixey asked if the construction would interrupt normal operations.

Hill said because of where the expansions will be and previous experience with expansions, they will be able to get work done and still keep the clinic open.

Brixey made the motion to recommend approval to the Salisbury City Council, and it was approved unanimously.

The addition is scheduled to go before City Council at its June 7 meeting.
