the north 60 — an innovative bioscience, technology and lifestyle campus in the heart of westchester

The Project

Holistic in its approach and intergenerational in its appeal, the North 60 is an innovative bioscience, technology and lifestyle campus that expands and enhances Westchester County’s thriving biotech/healthcare sector. The $1.2 billion project will generate thousands of new high-paying careers in bioscience, healthcare and research. And it will support a steady stream of construction, hospitality and retail jobs. It will also create career opportunities for students in the emerging bioscience field by forming partnerships with nearby Westchester Community College, Pace University and New York Medical College.

The Plan

The North 60 will be designed to create a strong sense of place with a pedestrian-friendly Main Street lined with shops, a hotel and conference center, restaurants with outdoor dining and landscaped plazas as gathering places. It will be a walkable and interconnected community with sidewalks, paved multi-use paths, pedestrian bridges and bikeways connected to a regional bike network.  In a feature unique to the region, the North 60 will have a Children’s Living Science Center designed to promote STEAM education and the improvement of children’s health through dynamic and interactive programming. The Center will also provide career training and future employment readiness to local area students.

The Location

Centrally located in the Town of Mount Pleasant on 80 acres of land adjacent to Westchester Medical Center and New York Medical College, the North 60 is in close proximity to Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, the nation’s fastest growing biotech company.  It will feature nearly 3 million square feet of cutting-edge biotech research labs, space for incubator program graduates, eco-friendly office/medical and retail spaces, with access to the nation’s most highly educated and skilled workforce.

Investing in Westchester's Future

  • $9 million in estimated new real-estate taxes annually to the county, the town and the school districts
  • Estimated $7 million in new annual rent to the county
  • Approximately 4,000 new construction jobs
  • More than 8,000 new permanent jobs, from entry-level to professional

The Developer

The developer of the North 60 is Fareri Associates, a premier development company in Westchester and Fairfield counties with more than 40 years of experience. Together with his wife Brenda, John Fareri was the major driving force behind the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at the Westchester Medical Center.

Maria Fareri Children's Hospital

After John and Brenda Fareri lost their daughter Maria in 1995, they learned that Maria, as part of a school project, had wished for the health and well-being of all world’s children. The Fareri family then led the fund-raising, design, and creation of the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital, a “family-centered” hospital. It’s the only hospital in the United States named after a child.
