Construction of Former Bradlees Site in New City Started

Construction of Former Bradlees Site in New City Started


The renovation of the former Bradlees shopping center on Squadron Boulevard in New City has begun.  Town agencies have been working diligently with the owner of the property for years to redevelop this site.  There have been many starts and stops over the years, mainly due to economic decisions by the Stop and Shop Corporation. 


Supervisor Alex Gromack said, “This project has been a long time coming.  It’s very exciting.  We have had so many false starts; people didn’t believe this day would come.” 


The owners have plans to redevelop the shopping plaza with a Super Stop and Shop grocery store and to relocate the Walgreens to its own free-standing building on the property.  


Gromack said, “This is truly the beginning of the revitalization of New City, which coincides with the development of Kevin Landau Park starting this spring.”


Councilman John Maloney said, “It took a long time coming but it is going to be more beautiful than ever.  It will add to the commercial base and the Town of Clarkstown and will provide many jobs for many people.  It is a plus no matter how you look at it.  We are glad that they came when they did.” 


Councilman Ralph Mandia said, “This important piece of commercial property will come to life, it is a great example of a developer working closely with town planners.  While it has taken a long time, the final product will be outstanding.”


Councilwoman Shirley Lasker said, “We have worked long and hard to get the Bradlee's project started and finally on its way to being completed in June of 2009.  The Town Board and Planning Board have done everything over the years to expedite and encourage the development of the site.  That the project has begun in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression is a testament both to the developer and the town and its tenacity to see this project through to fruitition.” 


Councilman Frank Borelli said, “The long awaited revitalization has begun, but most important to all of my New City neighbors is that this eyesore we have endured for so many years will soon be gone.”
