Uniland Development Co.'s new office and medical building in downtown Buffalo will soon be fully occupied.
The Amherst-based developer completed the three-story building at the corner of Tupper and Ellicott streets in May, taking up one of three Frey the Wheelman properties that Uniland purchased in 2014.
The primary tenant of the 23,000-square-foot brick-facade building at 520 Ellicott will be DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc., whose Bronx Dialysis Center affiliate will operate a $1.9 million, 13-station kidney dialysis clinic in the facility. DaVita – which will move into the building in the fall – operates more than 2,320 clinics nationwide, including nine in Western New York and five more under development.
Huron Consulting Group, a Chicago-based management consulting firm, has already taken up 5,500 square feet of office space on the building's third floor. The firm, which employs 50 in Buffalo, will add 20 jobs as part of the move and expansion from its former office at University at Buffalo's Gateway building at 77 Goodell St.
Huron came to Buffalo with its $9.2 million acquisition of Buffalo technology startup Cloud62 in October 2015.
Plans for the other two parcels that Uniland bought, across the street on Ellicott, are still being developed, the company said.
