Levi’s is the latest retailer to sign on at the Empire Outlets on Staten Island.

The classic denim brand signed a lease for 5,450 square feet at BFC Partners’ 340,000-square-foot retail complex, the landlord told The Real Deal. It will be Levi’s first outlet store in the city.

BFC principal Joseph Ferrara said the developer is targeting “New Yorkers and visitors from across the world” as the shopping and dining project prepares to open in the fall.

James Prendamano at Casandra Properties is handling leasing at the project, which is now roughly 75 percent leased.

Earlier this year, Old Navy signed a lease for a little more than 13,000 square feet at the project and Brooks Brothers took about 4,000 square feet.

Other retailers include H&M and Columbia Sporting Goods, alongside restaurants Shake Shack, Artichoke Basille’s Pizza and the artisanal food hall MRKTPL.

Levi’s, meanwhile, signed a lease late last year to relocate its Times Square store from Levin Management’s Paramount Building at 1501 Broadway two blocks north to Vornado Realty Trust’s 1535 Broadway.
