Lindenwood is getting a new shopping mall, according to published reports.
Bawabeh Realty Holdings is developing a three-building, 250,000-square-foot shopping complex called Linden Center. It is expected to open by the end of 2015 at 135-25 79th St. and 78-01 Linden Blvd.
A total of three buildings will be constructed, with two buildings rising two stories and one building rising one story.
The retail tenants include LA Fitness, which will occupy 45,000 square feet, Pet Supplies Plus, Deals and AutoZone. Foodtown will potentially lease space as well, according to published reports. More than 18 retail leases have been signed and the shopping center is 70 percent leased.
The space will also feature a 300-spot underground parking garage and a small office space will be included in the flagship building.
The lot was bought for $4.5 million by Bawabeh Realty Holdings in 2011.
