A big-box retailer has expressed interest in purchasing 57 acres of vacant land along Arthur Kill Road in the Charleston area of Staten Island., according to Robert Knakal, chairman of Massey Knakal Realty Services, which is marketing the site.

Knakal declined to specify the identity of the retailer but said the site’s size and its proximity to other large-scale shopping destinations, such as Target, Bed Bath & Beyond and Home Depot in the Bricktown Center, makes it a desirable prospective purchase.

“This section of Arthur Kill Road has undergone explosive development over the last five years and is arguably the most dynamic retail/commercial area on Staten Island,” the listing says. “[It is] perfectly situated for prime retail, commercial and/or industrial development.”

It’s difficult to find such a substantial land parcel in New York City, Knakal said. [Staten Island Advance]
