In its first major lease at the Boyce Thompson Center under construction in Yonkers, Simone Development Companies has announced that St. John’s Riverside Hospital has signed a 15,000 s/f lease for medical offices at the mixed-use complex.
St. John’s Riverside, which is the largest community hospital in Westchester County, is leasing the entire two-level freestanding glass and aluminum building that will be built at the corner of Executive Boulevard and Executive Plaza.
St. John’s Riverside is located on North Broadway less than one mile away from the Boyce Thompson Center.
“We are excited about this opportunity to expand into an incredible new state-of-the art facility,” said Ron Corti, president & CEO of St. John’s Riverside Hospital.
“This prime location will help us continue to serve our patients with convenient access to needed outpatient services, and is in keeping with our mission of providing the highest quality, most technologically advanced healthcare for our community today and for generations to come.”
Joseph Simone, president of Simone Development Companies, said that, since construction began in June, the developer has seen tremendous interest from office and retail operations seeking occupancy at the center.
The Boyce Thompson Center is a modern 85,000 s/f mixed-used complex under construction on the site of the former Boyce Thompson Institute.
Located at the intersection of North Broadway and Executive Boulevard in Northwest Yonkers, the new Boyce Thompson Center will include office space for business and medical use on the upper floor of the building with the front and rear grade levels housing medical offices, retail stores, banking and two restaurants.
The historic Boyce Thompson building, which was built in the 1920s, will be restored to its original character.
The $35 million project is expected to be completed in 20 months.
The Boyce Thompson Center is located directly off Executive Boulevard with access to the Saw Mill River Parkway and North Broadway. New York Thruway, Bronx River Parkway are also minutes away.
