Simone Healthcare Development Group announced that Fresenius Medical Care North America, a provider of kidney dialysis service and renal care products, has leased 17,000 s/f of space at Metro Center Atrium, Simone’s new mixed-use project.
Metro Center Atrium is a 370,000 s/f office/retail/hotel complex that Simone Development is constructing as the latest phase of its 42-acre, multi-building Hutchinson Metro Center campus.
“Metro Center Atrium has quickly taken shape as the Bronx’s leading mixed-use property, offering the best package of amenities in its market,” said Jim MacDonald, vice president and director of leasing for Hutchinson Metro Center. “We anticipate tremendous demand for the remaining Class A office, medical and retail space, particularly given the strong performance of previous phases of our development at Hutchinson Metro Center. These are exciting times for the Bronx and we’re very proud to be a major contributor to the economic renaissance underway in the Borough.”
Located within Simone Development’s successful Hutchinson Metro Center complex in the Pelham Bay section of the Bronx, Metro Center Atrium features three floors of Class A office and medical space, as well as further retail and restaurant opportunities.
The building will feature a glass atrium and lobby and is set in a landscaped suburban-style campus setting. Approximately 148,000 square feet of office and medical space remains available for lease.
“Metro Center Atrium is already 60 percent pre-leased and has already attracted national-level companies like Marriott and LA Fitness, and we expect that this project will continue to draw high-caliber office, medical and retail users,” said MacDonald.
“Among other things, Simone Development’s ongoing expansion of Hutchinson Metro Center provides medical and business tenants with flexibility for their future plans because we can readily accommodate their growth needs within the Simone Development portfolio. ”
