|Good news for Sandy-battered Gravesend, Brooklyn: Thor Equities, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Brooklyn borough prez Marty Markowitz, and other officials yesterday broke ground on a new, massive BJ’s Wholesale Club on Shore Parkway that’ll create over 300 jobs for local residents.|
|Above, NYC Councilmember Domenic Recchia, BJ’s regional manager Dan Smith, Thor Equities CEO Joe Sitt, Marty, and Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce prez Carlo Scissura move dirt on the 200k SF building, which will deliver in spring 2014 and be the wholesale club’s third store in the borough. It’ll join a Best Buy, Mercedes-Benz dealership, and New York Sports Club on the site. (Although, Joe's forearms don't need a gym—he also broke ground on a Meatpacking office and retail building last week.)|
