Lowe’s Breaks Ground | Yorktown Heights, NY

The highly-anticipated 120,000 square foot home improvement store will anchor a new shopping destination at 3200 Old Crompond Road and is expected to be finished by November 2018.

“We’re all excited about having Lowe’s come to Westchester,” said County Executive Rob Astorino, one of several officials who spoke during a groundbreaking Thursday. He said officials who helped spur the redevelopment along understand “economic development is important.”

It’s not just the 200 jobs that will be created at the Lowe’s and other businesses or the 400 construction jobs, Astorino said, but it’s another reason to shop in the county.Image result for lowes construction

The project, by Breslin Realty Development Corp., is set to include three other buildings, which could potentially be two restaurants and a bank. No new businesses have been announced.

“It’s required a lot of patience, as do all my projects, but it’s been worth the wait for the residents of the region to have a great home improvement store on the property that has become an eye sore for many years,” Wilbur Breslin, chief executive of developer Breslin Realty Development Corp., said in a news release. The Lowe’s will go in an area of Yorktown Heights with easy access to the parkway and where some other businesses have come along, including a steakhouse just down the road.

It will be the second Lowe’s in Westchester County. The first, a 70,000-square-foot store at Westchester’s Ridge Hill shopping center in Yonkers, held a grand opening in July.
