Midwood Investment & Development, a national real estate investment and development firm founded in New York in 1925, has secured Burlington Stores as its new tenant at Expressway Plaza in Farmingville, New York.
Burlington recently celebrated the grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony, local school donation and customer giveaways.
Located at 2280 North Ocean Avenue, the national retailer occupies 33,483 s/f as part of a long term lease. As Burlington continues to expand across New York, the new opening brings the total number of store locations in the state to 49. The new Farmingville location features an updated, clean design making it easy for customers to navigate and find fresh merchandise.
“As Burlington expands across New York, their presence at Expressway Plaza solidifies the ongoing robust demand for physical retail locations and experiences for customers and communities,” said John Usdan, CEO and President of Midwood Investment & Development.
“We’re grateful to have worked closely with Councilman Kevin LaValle and the Town of Brookhaven to bring quality retailers to the community and are delighted to welcome such a nationally beloved store to Expressway Plaza.”
Expressway Plaza is a grocery anchored open air shopping center boasting more than 285,000 s/f of retail stores and restaurants. Situated in one of the busiest intersections of Suffolk County, additional tenants include Starbucks, City MD, LA Fitness and Burger King, among others.
To help mark the grand opening, Burlington donated $5,000 to Lynwood Avenue Elementary School through its longstanding partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org. Funds will be used to support teachers and their classrooms so that they can purchase materials needed for their students to better learn and succeed.
Midwood Investment & Development was represented by Jessica Vilmenay and Kenneth Schuckman of Schuckman Realty in the transaction. Burlington was represented by Clifford Simon from CNS Real Estate.
