An urgent care clinic in Lakewood is facing possible eviction.
Urgent Care Extra-Colorado LLC, which operates as Metro Urgent Care, was sued last week by its landlord at 2595 S. Lewis Way, Suite A.
The landlord, North Bear SPE LLC, said in the lawsuit that the clinic did not pay its February rent of $14,504, and as a result owes the landlord a total of $215,598.
North Bear SPE is asking a judge to award it damages and possession of the premises. The lawsuit was filed Feb. 28 in Jefferson County District Court.
Contacted Friday, the Metro Urgent Care clinic directed questions to its central business office in Aurora. Staff at that office did not respond to requests for comment.
According to the lawsuit, Metro Urgent Care signed a lease for the space in 2016, and the lease runs through December 2026.
As of Feb. 28, the urgent care facility had failed to pay rent that was due Feb. 1, according to the lawsuit, which adds that “tenant has failed to make timely rent payments for three out of the last twelve months.”
The total of $215,598 the landlord claims it is owed reflects the cost of February rent, $53,477 for 150 days of free rent associated with the signing of the lease, $104,104 in tenant improvements paid for by the landlord and a $43,512 leasing commission.
Attorney Jean Gold with Rumler Tarbox Lyden Law Corp. is representing the landlord in the proceedings.
Metro Urgent Care is a chain of walk-in medical clinics with 14 locations across the Denver metro area. The Lewis Way location is one of two in Lakewood; another operates at 10590 W. Colfax Ave., according to the company’s website.
