In a recent article by Catherine Curan, in The Real Deal Magazine, Staten Island’s NEW SPRINGVILLE area won the “Retail Title” with 188 chain stores in 2009.
Together with the 1.274 million-square-foot Staten Island Mall, there are a network of strip centers in this 10314 zip code.
With an area more than 18 times larger than Midtown’s 10001 zip(the nearest competitor), there is enough room for the parking big chain operators like.
More chain store deals are in the works for New Springville, which has more than triple the amount of chain stores in any other zip code on Staten Island.
Look for a new presence at the former “Linens ‘n Things” and a national chain that doesn’t yet have a presence in Staten Island at the former “Ethan Allen”
space on Richmond Avenue.
