Westchester County Looking for Large Block of Space for DOH Offices
Real Estate In-Depth | March 20, 2023
WHITE PLAINS—Commercial property owners and developers in Westchester have until May 15 to submit proposals for leasing new office space that will be used by the Westchester County Department of Health. Details about space requirements are listed in a recently released RFP (Request for Proposals).
Primarily the new office space will be used to consolidate the Westchester County Department of Health’s executive and administrative offices which are currently located in eight buildings throughout Westchester into one more efficiently planned space. According to the RFP, the county is seeking approximately 50,000 rentable square feet of office space plus approximately 4,000 rentable square feet of storage space.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, “This is about more than cost-saving benefits—this consolidation will improve the outcomes for our services and ensure we support our employees with quality spaces that meet today’s exacting standards. The recently completed Westchester County Real Estate Master plan is a direct result of our continued response to listening and responding to the needs of our employees, our residents, and those who do business in Westchester.”
Westchester County Director of Operations and Chairperson of the County of Westchester Industrial Development Agency Joan McDonald added, “We realized during the COVID-19 pandemic that we had some inefficiencies that were exacerbated specific to the Department of Health. Like many aspects of the pandemic, we found we needed to change how we perform our work and serve the county. With this consolidation and leasing opportunity we are excited about the positive outcomes for the county operations and the local office market.”
