Chautauqua County - The New York State Urban Development Corporation d/b/a Empire State Development (ESD), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Athenex Manufacturing Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves ESD providing funding to Athenex, an innovative global pharmaceutical company, toward the development of a new pharmaceutical manufacturing facility on a 33.5 acre site. When fully operational, the facility would allow Athenex to develop and produce innovative drugs that can have a life-changing impact on cancer patients. The development of the facility would involve clearing/grading of the site and construction of a two story, 40 foot high structure with approximately 320,000 square feet of usable space that would house central utilities, manufacturing, warehouse, laboratories and office spaces. Site improvements would include surface parking areas and associated lighting/landscaping. The Project would be developed in two phases beginning in 2017 and the proposed facility would ultimately employ approximately 400 persons. The project is located at 3799 Lake Shore Drive East (NYS Route 5) in the Town of Dunkirk, New York.
