NYC’s first enclosed mall in 40 years officially opens

New York -- The Mall at Bay Plaza, New York City’s first enclosed fashion mall in over 40 years, officially opens on Aug. 14.

Located on Baychester Avenue in the Bronx, the 780,000-sq.-ft., three-level center will be the largest shopping mall in the city. It will include a new, ground-up Macy’s and an existing J.C. Penney as the anchor tenants. Over 100 retail shops have been constructed, many of which will operate in the Bronx for the first time such as H&M, Michael Kors, Ulta, Victoria Secret, and Kay Jewelers. Four new restaurants, a new gym and AMC Theater will be featured tenants as well.  
 
Sam Shalem, CEO and chairman of Prestige Properties & Development Co. Inc., the mall’s developer, created more than 2,000 construction jobs and will soon open its doors to more than 1,700 permanent jobs.
