DaVita Edges Closer to Landscape Renovations

Friday, April 5, 2013

DaVita Dialyisis Corporation hopes to break ground on landscaping renovations to its Claremont Avenue facility this summer, according to Peter Lund, founder of Scenic Streets, a local volunteer group.

Scenic Streets has been negotiating improvements to the prominent property at the corner of Clifton Street and Claremont for nearly two years. The removal of blight and addition of greenery promised by DaVita last summer remain eagerly anticipated by local residents and businesses.

Lund reports that DaVita claims to have provided property owner Jim Falaschi of Transbay Holding with the necessary documentation several months ago. Falaschi's approval is the last significant hurdle before work can begin.

Falaschi did not return calls from The Rockridge News regarding the status of the paperwork.
