CORTLANDT, N.Y. -- ShopRite has signed on to be one of the tenants at a 130,000-square-foot shopping center planned in the Cortlandt enclave of Mohegan Lake, its developers announced Monday.
Acadia Realty Trust held a groundbreaking ceremony at the 3144 East Main St. site Friday, Oct. 21, that was attended by local dignitaries, including Town Supervisor Linda Puglisi.
Puglisi said the town is thrilled about the shopping center because it will provide both jobs and additional revenue for the town, school district and county.
Acadia has agreed to install an new traffic signal by Baker Street off the heavily trafficked Route 6. It will also, Puglisi said, add amenities such as sidewalks and decorative lighting.
The ShopRite building will be 65,000 square feet in size.
ShopRite is a subsidiary of Wakefern Food Corp., the largest retailer-owned supermarket cooperative in the United States.
It has more than 260 locations throughout the northeast in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania.
Cortlandt Crossing, about three miles west of the Taconic State Parkway, will be right across the road from Cortlandt Town Center, which is also owned by Acadia and includes retailers such as Walmart, Marshalls, PetSmart, Barnes & Noble and Best Buy.
“Westchester County remains a vibrant and thriving part of the fabric of New York state, home to several local and nationally recognized retail brands,” said Christopher Conlon, Acadia executive vice president and chief operating officer.
Cortlandt has, Conlon added, “evolved into a viable suburban development hub” for the company’s “growing retail portfolio.”
Tom Urtz, ShopRite’s vice president of operations, said the company promises to provide with new updates and expanded product and service offerings, while “continuing to provide the outstanding customer service, variety, value, low prices and convenient amenities ShopRite is known for.”
