As renters look for less expensive options outside of New York City, the real estate development community is seeing new opportunity in Westchester County. Demand for apartments in the county’s urban areas is growing, fueling new investment in rental projects, especially along train lines.
Westchester County may soon be home to a new $1.2 billion biotech research, medical, and office development with retail space, a 100-room hotel, and eventually, a children’s living center, according to County Executive Robert Astorino, who unveiled the plans at the WCA’s Economic Forecast Breakfast on January 7. The Westchester BioScience & Technology Center would be developed on 80 acres in Valhalla, with private sector developer Fareri Associates.
