Regeneron dedicated their new 120 million state of the art complex today. This company, which is located in Greenburgh (Landmark at Eastview) is one of the largest, state of the art corporate facilities to be built in Westchester County in recent years. It solidifies the fact that Greenburgh is one of the leading bio med life science locations in New York State. Recently, OSI (another bio tech company) announced plans to make their headquarters in the Ardsley section of Greenburgh.
Regeneron, a fully integrated biopharmaceutical company that discovers, develops and commercializes medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions including cancer, gout, and retinal and other diseases, will use the new facilities for its research and development laboratories, clinical development staff, corporate headquarters and administrative offices. With the two new buildings, Regeneron now occupies approximately 390,000 square feet in four buildings on the 116 acre Landmark campus. Regeneron, which had just four employees when it opened its research laboratories at The Landmark at Eastview in 1989, now has over 1,000 employees. Regeneron’s full-scale manufacturing facility is in Rensselaer, New York. Regeneron has a long history of successful scientific advancements in discovering drug candidates for treatment of serious conditions.
The completion of this new facility is the culmination of a successful economic development effort involving the Empire State Development Corporation, the Westchester County Industrial Development Agency and the Town of Greenburgh. Regeneron and BioMed broke ground on the two new build-to-suit buildings, comprising approximately 230,000 square feet, in April 2007. William The new facilities offer environmentally friendly design features, including a white roof to reflect heat, a high efficiency HVAC system, building layouts for laboratories and offices to maximize day lighting, a courtyard located between buildings that maximizes permeable surfaces to reduce water runoff, and extensive use of sustainable materials such as bamboo flooring and low volatility organic compounds. In addition, as part of The Landmark at Eastview campus, employees are provided complimentary shuttle service to the North White Plains and Tarrytown Metro North Stations and convenient access to other public transportation. The Landmark at Eastview is one of the largest privately-owned, multi-tenant science parks in New York State. The 116-acre campus consists of eight main buildings and over 1.1 million rentable square feet of research and development facilities and high-tech office space. Construction of a third lab-ready building was initiated and completed concurrently with the core and shell construction for Regeneron’s two new buildings.
In my remarks at the dedication ceremony I mentioned that Regeneron is not only good for economic development, jobs and Greenburgh. The company is good for the world. This company has given hope to families who have been distressed with medical conditions of their loved ones. And, they have give a new lease on life to those who are living normal lives, after being diagnosed with cancer, eye disease, inflammatory diseases and pain.
