Fast food chain Chick-fil-A is moving into Times Square.

The restaurant will take retail space at The Hive, a 140,000-square-foot development at 675 Eighth Avenue, according to the New York Post. The total square-footage of Chich-fil-A’s lease was not reported.

The chicken restaurant’s move to the center of the city follows the Downtown opening of its largest-ever store. In 2018, the restaurant began filling orders at a five-story location with a rooftop at Fulton Center Station, with room for 140 customers.

The Times Square site, which includes 303 West 42nd Street and 300 West 43rd Street, is being redeveloped by Kevin R. Wang of KRW Realty Advisors. The West 42nd Street property was previously known as the home of Times Square’s last porn shop, Show World Center.

After Richard Basciano, the former owner of the porn shop, died in 2017, his family filed plans to convert the site. KRW joined with Colliers to redevelop the site into an $80 million boutique office and retail building.

The redevelopment is expected to include seven new storefronts, two lobbies and a rooftop terrace. It is slated to open in the spring. Polish bakery Just Baked is also taking space there. [NYP] — David Jeans
