Westchester County Association Breaking News!

January 10, 2019

Westchester County Executive George Latimer announced this morning at the Westchester County Association Breakfast that he will agree to sign a 99-year lease agreement for the North 60 project.

The agreement for the county-owned land is the key to the development of a $1.2 billion biotech project on the Grasslands Reservation in Valhalla. The Westchester County Association (WCA) has been heavily advocating for and involved with the project since its inception.


“It is clear that the County Executive and the Board of Legislators have made economic development a priority,” WCA President and CEO William M. Mooney, Jr. said. “This project will go a long way to solidifying our region’s brand as a hub of innovation in healthcare and life sciences. The WCA has long supported the development of the North 60 as a means to bring together academia, healthcare, life sciences and technology. It will provide meaningful opportunities for economic development, innovation and collaboration. I commend John Fareri for his vision, perseverance and passion for healthcare and life sciences in our region.”
