John F. Kennedy International Airport

A place to park cars near JFK International Airport could transform into a place to sip coffee, buy groceries and shop.

Linx Industries is pitching its 11-acre site by JFK to supermarkets and stores, according to the New York Post. The site is located on the east side of Rockaway Boulevard just southeast of its intersection with Brookville Boulevard and straddling Queens and Nassau County.

Schuckman Realty TRData LogoTINY is marketing the site as a 75,000-square-foot project built on five acres to avoid damaging nearby wetlands. A supermarket anchor tenant would be expected to pay between $40 and $45 per square foot for the site, and Starbucks has already signed a letter of intent.

At the beginning of the year, officials revealed details of a $10 billion renovation plan for the oft-maligned airport,  which would include expanding, redeveloping and relocating terminals, as well as cutting down on traffic congestion by redesigning major roads leading to JFK. [NYP] Eddie Small
