Federal Realty Investment Trust plans a complete redevelopment of Huntington Shopping Center in Huntington Station, NY.

Federal Realty Maps Out Huntington Retail Redevelopment

Federal Realty Investment Trust will launch a complete redevelopment of Huntington Shopping Center in Huntington Station, NY on Long Island, including the addition of Whole Foods. A $75-million investment will result in updated facades, reconstructed parking lots, new landscaping and walkways, and outdoor seating areas at the center, which sits adjacent to Walt Whitman Mall.   

“Bringing Whole Foods to this location jump starts a long-awaited redevelopment of Huntington Shopping Center,” said Mark Brennan, VP of regional development at Federal. “With our investment, we’ll reinvigorate the destination and deliver on our aim to provide essential retail at convenient locations with services and shopping to benefit our community.”  

This 21-acre community shopping center is home to various national retailers including PetSmart, ULTA, Tilly’s, and Michaels. All current tenants will remain open during construction, and once redevelopment is complete, there will be a total of 277,000 square feet of retail at the site.
