ExpressCare of North Point Signs Lease for New Urgent Care Facility at North Point Crossing
BALTIMORE (January 21, 2015) – ExpressCare of North Point has signed a lease with St. John Properties for 5,331 square feet of space at North Point Crossing in the Dundalk section of Baltimore County. The former North Point drive-in site is presently comprised of an 8,125 square foot retail center, a Burger King restaurant and The Townes at North Point, a 108-unit townhome development. More than two years ago, St. John Properties, in partnership with N.P. Investment, LLC, sold an eleven-acre parcel of land at the site to K. Hovnanian Homes to develop the upscale townhome community.
ExpressCare operates a chain of more than twenty-three urgent care facilities throughout the Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland region and partners with LifeBridge Health to manage its management and operations. The concept, which leased an end-cap location at North Point Crossing on 4100 North Point Boulevard, offers urgent medical treatment for illnesses and injuries, physical therapy, sports physicals and work-related injury services. ExpressCare is open seven days a week and requires no appointment.
“The urgent care category is among the fastest-growing in the retail sector, as consumers increasingly utilize this healthcare model for its convenience, time-savings and high quality of service and care,” explained Bill Holzman, Vice President – Retail Leasing for St. John Properties. “ExpressCare’s association with LifeBridge Health, which has established an extremely strong brand in the marketplace, was a strong attraction of us. The company has emerged as a viable player in the urgent care sector based on its continued expansion, experienced management team and breadth of healthcare services.”
“The Dundalk location fills a critical gap in our eastern Baltimore County coverage area and the end-cap location with roadside visibility provides us with a strong presence in the North Point Boulevard corridor,” stated Maurice Reid, M.D. and the CEO and chief medical officer of ExpressCare. “This project fulfills our requirement to find locations adjacent to dense residential areas, with free parking and near mature highway systems.”
More than 26,000 vehicles pass the North Point Boulevard site on a daily basis and more than 83,000 consumers reside within a three-mile radius with an average household income of more than $62,000.
