Burlington Coat Factory is coming to Jamaica, and it’s going to be huge.

The national clothing retail chain will be opening a store in a 150,000-square-foot planned retail complex located on Jamaica Avenue between Union Hall and 160th streets, according to published reports.

The store will take up 70,000 square feet and will spread across all three buildings, including parts of the second, third and fourth floors.

According to DNAinfo, the buildings in question include the former headquarters of the Jamaica Savings Bank, which was located in a landmarked Beaux-Arts building; another historic building constructed in 1927; and a building that has been vacant for several years.

The store, which is set to open in the spring of 2017, will join Burlington’s two current Queens locations in Rego Park and Glen Oaks.
