YONKERS, N.Y. – St. John’s Riverside Hospital has signed a 15,000-square foot lease for medical offices at Boyce Thompson Center, currently under construction.
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, less than one mile from St. John’s Riverside North Broadway location.
“We are excited about this opportunity to expand into an incredible new state-of-the art facility. 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,” said Ron Corti, president and CEO of St. John’s Riverside Hospital.
The Boyce Thompson Center is a modern 85,000-square-foot 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.
“We are thrilled to have St. John’s Riverside Hospital as our first tenant at the Boyce Thompson Center. This is an ideal location for medical offices providing easy access to major highways and excellent visibility along Executive Boulevard,” said Joseph Simone, president of Simone Development Companies. “Since we began construction in June, we have seen tremendous interest from office and retail operations seeking occupancy at the center,” he added.
The historic Boyce Thompson building, which was built in the 1920s, will be restored to its original character. The $35 million project, which broke ground in June, is expected to be completed in 20 months.
