Macerich opens big-box addition to Long Island mall


Macerich spent the weekend celebrating the opening of Green Acre Commons, an open-air congregation of big-box retailers adjoining its Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream, New York.

A fixture in the retail scene on the Queens-Nassau County border, the 1.8 million-sq.-ft. mall has served the area for more than 50 years with tenants such as Macy’s, J.C. Penney, Century 21, Express, and American Eagle. Last year, Macerich redeveloped and re-merchandised the south side of the property, creating a new entrance for Old Navy and H&M.

Live performances and events heralded the opening of the 350,000-sq.-ft. Commons, whose roster includes Ashley Furniture Homestore, BJ’s Brewhouse, Burlington, Dick’s Sporting Goods, 24-Hour Fitness, Sonic Drive-In, and Ulta Beauty.

“Green Acres Commons meets the needs of this attractive market for more top national brands,” said Joe Floccari, senior property manager of Green Acres Mall.
