$1.8 BILLION expansion is most significant economic development in town history!
REGENERON PRESENTS PLANS FOR NEW LOGISTICS BUILDING ON R&D CAMPUS
Designers propose 153,000 square foot space along Old Saw Mill River Road within existing site
An engineer and architect representing firm JMC came to the Greenburgh Town Board work session this week to present plans for another phase of the Regeneron campus development. In mid-2024 they hope to break ground for a new “logistics” building within the Research and Development Campus, and fitting within the zoning code already in place.

The logistics building will run alongside Old Saw Mill River Road on the eastern side of the campus loop road. This facility will add no additional traffic or trips to the site as it is functioning as a centralized location for what already exists on the campus elsewhere. Deliveries will all be made to this building and redistributed from here; the building will also house shops for mechanical and equipment repairs, glassware washing, storage space and offices--all in support of the campus’ lab spaces.
The roof will be solar-ready, and every attempt is being made to keep everything as electrical (rather than gas-powered) as possible. The company is in talks with Con Edison about utility usage. They are also extremely mindful of flooding concerns in the town and go above and beyond the make their property comply with code. Planning Commissioner Garrett Duquesne said their previous 1M square foot plans comprised of the eight new buildings underway on the campus now “were significantly over-designed for a 200-year storm standard, which I have never seen.”
This proposed logistics building will measure 136,000 square feet, three floors plus recessed penthouse, and be surrounded by 208 parking spaces. The square footage is well under the allowed max, the height is inches shy of the maximum height, and the parking allotment exceeds the minimum requirement by a few spaces.
Wetlands and sloping permits will be required from the Planning Board, along with some tree removal approval from the Town Board. The existing town wetland buffer requires some disturbance, as they have previously, to add grading and increase the dimensions of the stormwater runoff pond that further helps store and slow water flow.
The plans project this phase of development would be complete by the end of 2025/early 2026.
Regeneron deserves to be praised for being such a conscientious company Greenburgh can be proud of, a “tremendous asset to the town. Regeneron's 1.8 billion dollar expansion is the most significant economic development initiative in town history. We are so pleased that the bio tech company that manufactures life transforming medicines for people with serious diseases has chosen to expand in Greenburgh.
