Anticipated to open in spring 2012, this most recent location in Queens' newest regional mall further establishes Sky View Center as one of the borough's premier retailing locations, and joins the more than 60 bank branches within the three-mile stretch of the diverse neighborhood.

    "The recent introduction of a fourth Chase Bank branch further reinforces the growing economic strength and vitality of Flushing," said City Councilman Peter Koo of Flushing. "The combination of regional and international businesses continues to transform the neighborhood into a major urban business and retail destination for shopping, dining and entertainment."

    Coming at the heels of three major retail openings including Five Guys Burger & Fries, Famous Footwear and the 36,000-square-foot specialty Asian supermarket Sky Foods, Chase Bank will also join other national tenants including Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar, Target (including a Starbucks and Pizza Hut Express), Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, BJ's Wholesale Club, Bob's Discount Furniture, Chuck E. Cheese's, Marshall's, Old Navy, Payless Shoesource, and Hershey's Ice Cream.

    "The addition of Chase Bank reflects the ongoing strength and appeal of Sky View Center and will soon provide residents with another significant convenience of living at Sky View Parc," said Michael Dana, president of Onex Real Estate Partners, owner/developer of Sky View Center. "We are pleased to provide this new branch of Chase Bank for those living and shopping in one of New York City's fastest growing neighborhoods."
