Construction is nearing completion on the Boyce Thompson Center, the approximately $35 million, 85,000-square-foot mixed-use development in Yonkers by Simone Development Cos.
“A building that for decades had no purpose will soon become a public space for the benefit of the community, offer 300 jobs and will be back on the tax rolls,” Guy Leibler, president of Simone Healthcare Development, said of the roughly seven-acre property at 1086 N Broadway that adjoins the South Westchester Executive Park.
Most recently, Westmed Medical Group, the Purchase-based multispecialty medical practice, signed a long-term lease for a two-floor, 20,000-square-foot structure on the south side of the original Boyce Thompson building. Westmed’s building is scheduled to open in March or April and will be connected to the main complex by a glass-covered corridor. The facility will house an urgent care center, according to Leibler, along with 17,000 square feet of primary care space.
In addition to Westmed, health care tenants at the new Boyce Thompson Center include Gastroenterology of Westchester LLC, Juvanni Medspace Spa and Fresenius Medical Care. St. John’s Riverside Hospital will begin tenant work during the last week of September on its two-level, 15,000-square-foot medical office building and is scheduled to open its facility in January.
