A brand-new retail outlet plaza is growing on the former site of a multiplex movie theater next to the Green Acres Mall at the border of Nassau County and Rosedale this fall.

The 20-acre parcel next to Green Acres Mall is under construction, and the plans are “to create a power center designed to deliver big-box favorites” dubbed as Green Acres Commons, according the Green Acres Mall website.

The shopping plaza located at 2034 Green Acres Road West is replacing the classic Sunrise Multiplex Cinemas, which opened in 1979 and closed last January. 

Back in October 2015, The Macerich Company, a California-based retail real firm that owns Green Acres Mall, revealed the first six stores to open at Green Acres Commons. The shopping center will feature Ashley Furniture HomeStore, BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Burlington Coat Factory, Buffalo Wild Wings, Dick’s Sporting Goods and FiveBelow. The signs of these stores including a sign of HomeGoods are already visible for the passersby.

The shoppers at Green Acres Mall seemed unfazed by the new Commons development. “When it’s open, I’ll take a look and that’s about it,” said customer Vallerie Chiverton.

“The traffic is getting really horrible and it’s gonna get worse … They’re trying to turn this place into another Roosevelt Field Mall,” an anonymous shopper said.

Newsday cited that Macerich has spent $83.7 million on the center. The company has made serious strides to enhance the Valley Steam space by opening an H&M flagship location as well as constructing a new, two-level, 70,000-square-foot Century 21 Department Store in Green Acres Mall. The Century 21 opened in October 2015.

QNS has reached out to Macerich for additional comments and is awaiting a response.
