For those that donâ€™t know, Lowes, the Big Box Home Supply store is coming to our side of Brooklyn. They are looking to setup shop in what used to be the outdoor parking lot next to Kings Plaza.
Recently, at a Mill Basin Civic Association Meeting, residents expressed opposition to the plan. The plan is for the construction of a one-story, 120,000 square foot, free-standing building. The cost is expected to be around $11.5 Million.
Residents are concerned over the deterioration of the community and the increased traffic. Anyone of our readers who have been over there recently know the traffic is insane, from dollar vans, double parked cars, people crossing, and the entrance to the home depot is usually at a dead stop, never mind the weekends.
The Loweâ€™s plan, which has yet been seen by the community board, and local groups, contains plans for other retail stores to be located on the property.
The Home Depot next door may be relocated but there are no confirmed plans. Maybe they might be good neighbors.
