Lidl Continues NYC Expansion

Just over two weeks after a reported 23,000-square-foot deal in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, Germany-based grocer Lidl has signed two leases in Queens. The larger of the two deals will see Lidl open a store formerly occupied by Key Foods in the Glen Oaks Shopping Center at 255-01 Union Turnpike. The 15-year lease for 41,000 square feet includes 34,000 square feet on the ground floor and an asking rent of between $30 and $40 per square foot. The second location will be located at 187-04 Horace Harding Expressway in Fresh Meadows. Full details of the lease for 28,000 square feet were not disclosed.
