Broadway Mall on Long Island begins renovation

Hicksville, NY — Pacific Retail Capital Partners announced that renovations for Broadway Mall have officially begun and four new tenant leases signed. Opening soon at the popular Long Island retail and entertainment destination will be Noodles & Company, Blaze Pizza, Chick-fil-A and Blink Fitness. Several existing stores, including H&M, are also remodeling in conjunction with the larger renovation. “Broadway Mall appreciates the long-time community support we’ve received and our leadership team is eager to reward loyal patrons with an enhanced shopping and dining experience,” said John Rossi, general manager of Broadway Mall. “These renovations and new tenants provide a refreshed atmosphere, additional culinary choices and enhanced street visibility.” Renovations and Remodels Mall renovations focus on updating the main exterior entrance by stripping the existing pillars and reworking the facade to provide a grander, more recognizable entrance. Additional renovations include modernizing the walkways with new flooring and improving outdoor hardscapes and landscapes with new benches, seating, foliage and flowers. The entire renovation will make the mall more family friendly – inviting shoppers to linger and savor their shopping experience instead of rushing in and out. “Investing in Broadway Mall is an investment into the strong community of Hicksville,” said Gary Karl, executive VP of Pacific Retail Capital Partners. “The renovations and added amenities will provide an improved experience.”
