Stop & Shop Supermarket Opening at Expressway Plaza in Staten Island, NY

The Kalikow Group announces that Stop & Shop Super­mar­ket Co. has taken over the 60,000 square-foot anchor lease at Express­way Plaza, a 95,000 square-foot com­mu­nity shop­ping cen­ter located at 1441 Rich­mond Avenue in the Gran­iteville sec­tion of Staten Island, N.Y.

Stop & Shop has assumed the long-term lease of the prop­erty for­merly held by King Kullen super­mar­kets, which sold its three Staten Island loca­tions to Stop & Shop in Decem­ber 2011. Stop & Shop re-opened the re-branded Express­way Plaza super­mar­ket and another for­mer King Kullen super­mar­ket at 4343 Amboy Rd. in the Elt­ingville sec­tion on Jan­u­ary 20, dou­bling the company’s Staten Island locations.

Express­way Plaza fea­tures six points of entry; a ded­i­cated left turn at the Rich­mond Avenue entrance traf­fic light; a park­ing ratio of over six cars per 1,000 square feet; and ben­e­fits from over 100,000 daily cars pass­ing through the inter­sec­tion of I-278 and Rich­mond Avenue.

“Express­way Plaza has always been a prime super­mar­ket loca­tion, cater­ing to a sta­ble, middle-class com­mu­nity of diverse eth­nic­i­ties,” said Edward Kalikow, pres­i­dent and CEO of The Kalikow Group. “We are grat­i­fied that Stop & Shop will anchor the shop­ping cen­ter for years to come, fill­ing a vital need for the Gran­iteville community.”

Com­pleted in 1998 by a joint ven­ture of The Kalikow Group and Feldco Devel­op­ment Corp., Express­way Plaza is located adja­cent to the Staten Island Express­way (1–278) at the Rich­mond Avenue
