The City Council approved plans for a 226,000-square-foot development on Staten Island that will include a BJ’s Wholesale Club and other retailers, the Staten Island Advance reported.

Council Member Debi Rose supported the project near the island’s west shore after the developer agreed to give concessions in order to allay concerns regarding flooding, traffic and the environment.

The development will include 838 park spaces on a 28-acre lot at 2324 Forest Avenue. Construction is scheduled to start next year and be ready to open by the fall of 2019.

The project is not far from where Amazon plans to open an 855,00-square-foot distribution center. [SILive]Rich Bockmann
