From Sheepshead Bites:
A new retail project is being proposed on city-owned property near Kings Plaza, and the city is looking for your input.
Four Sparrows Marsh Retail Mall, named after the 67-acre preserve that it will be built on, is a proposed 15-acre development that will expand the existing Toys “R” Us lot at 2875 Flatbush Avenue.
Details of the plan are still being drawn up, according to NYC Economic Development Corporation’s project description, but a key component of the plan includes a commercial building will go on the left side of the existing Toys “R” Us building and will house Kristal Auto Mall, which is moving from it current Kings Highway location. That building will house the dealership, showroom and the service space.
Aside from that, there are two options being considered for the other side of Toys “R” Us. The first is for two commercial structures that will house multiple commercial tenants. The second option is for one large commercial structure that will house one tenant. They’re also planning on-site parking for approximately 820 vehicles.
A public scope meeting for the Four Sparrows Retail Center Project is scheduled for January 11, 2011, at 7:00 p.m. at the Kings Plaza Community Room (5117 Avenue U) to answer questions and concerns from the public.
