After revising their proposal to add new loading docks to Rentar Plaza, Rentar Development Corporation received the support of Community Board 5 earlier this week.
CB5 voted 27 to 3 in favor of the application, which will move forward in the approval process.
According to the Land Use Committee, Rentar “went back to the drawing board” to accommodate community concerns about traffic and safety. They moved the new loading docks inside the current property instead.
The corporation is looking to attract tenants to replace Kmart and Toys R Us, both of which filed for bankruptcy in these tough times for retail.
Their retail spots total 190,000 square feet.
