Noodles & Company, Blaze Pizza, Blink Fitness and Chick-fil-A To Open, H&M Enhances Existing Location
Hicksville, New York (August 12, 2015) – Pacific Retail Capital Partners announced today that renovations for Broadway Mall (www.broadwaymall.com) – located in Hicksville, New York – have officially begun and four new tenant leases signed. Opening soon at the popular Long Island retail and entertainment destination will be Noodles & Company, Blaze Pizza, Chick-fil-A and Blink Fitness. Several existing stores, including H&M, are also remodeling in conjunction with the larger renovation.
“Broadway Mall appreciates the long-time community support we’ve received and our leadership team is eager to reward loyal patrons with an enhanced shopping and dining experience,” explains John Rossi, General Manager of Broadway Mall. “These renovations and new tenants provide a refreshed atmosphere, additional culinary choices and enhanced street visibility.”
Renovations and Remodels
Mall renovations focus on updating the main exterior entrance by stripping the existing pillars and reworking the facade to provide a grander, more recognizable entrance. Additional renovations include modernizing the walkways with new flooring and improving outdoor hardscapes and landscapes with new benches, seating, foliage and flowers. The entire renovation will make the mall more family friendly – inviting shoppers to linger and savor their shopping experience instead of rushing in and out.
Additionally, several existing stores and restaurants are remodeling or relocating. H&M is remodeling and expanding its space to 23,000 square feet, On the Border Mexican Cafe and Broadway Dental will be relocating to the main entrance at the front of the property, and an existing Subway restaurant is remodeling.
“Investing in Broadway Mall is an investment into the strong community of Hicksville,” said Gary Karl, Executive Vice President of Pacific Retail Capital Partners. “The renovations and added amenities will provide an improved experience, while the fresh dining venues and fitness center should be well-received by local individuals and families seeking affordable and convenient solutions to staying healthy.”
