Real Estate In-Depth | June 2016

YONKERS—Simone Development Companies reported recently the signing of five new leases totaling approximately 10,800 square of medical, restaurant and retail space at the Boyce Thompson Center, a new 85,000-square-foot mixed-use center under construction in Yonkers.

Gastroenterology of Westchester LLC and Juvanni MedSpa & Anti-Aging Center and Primary Medical Care have signed leases of 4,812 square feet and 1,840 square feet, respectively. Taco Project Yonkers, an award-winning restaurant, signed a lease for 1,470 square feet; Tompkins Mahopac Bank has leased 1,670 for a new branch location, and PLUSH Blow Dry Bar salon is leasing 972 square feet.

With the signing of the five leases, approximately 35% of the Boyce Thompson Center is leased. Late last year, Fortina, an Italian restaurant, signed a lease for 5,587 square feet on the main level of the building. St. John’s Riverside Hospital is leasing the entire two-level 15,000-square-foot freestanding building at the center for medical offices.

“We are very pleased at the level of leasing activity we are seeing at the Boyce Thompson Center. This unique and innovative project is attracting a wide range of tenants including medical practices, restaurants and retail.  We look forward to our opening this fall,” said Joseph Simone, president of Simone Development Companies.

Located off Executive Boulevard in Northeast Yonkers, the Boyce Thompson Center is a mixed-use development featuring Class A office space for businesses and medical practices, retail stores, banking and restaurants.

The historic Boyce Thompson building, which was built in the early 1900s, is being restored to its original character. In addition to the freestanding building to be occupied by St. John’s Riverside Hospital, a new building will be connected to the original building creating a total of 70,000 square feet of space. The center will also include outdoor site amenities such as areas for seating, eating and learning.
