Joining Fairway and IKEA in Red Hook will be BJ’s Wholesale Club, says the Brooklyn Paper. Their new home will be the site of the former Revere Sugar Factory on Beard Street, currently used as an IKEA parking lot. The developer, Thor Equities, offered this statement: “Thor is committed to ensuring that whichever organization leases this property, it will fully augment the historic revitalization occurring today in Red Hook.” They haven’t admitted that BJ’s is the new tenant, but an insider at the Borough President’s office let the news slip. The Beep assured the potential use of the site would be subject to a public review. “While welcoming major retailers to our borough could bring economic vitality and much-needed jobs to previously underserved and underutilized areas, we must also be sure to â€˜grow smart’ and preserve a neighborhood’s character, he said. This wouldn’t be Kings County’s first BJ’s. There’s another near Starrett CIty.
