Trader Joe's/Staples First Floor, Michael's Up Top

The plans for 90-30 Metropolitan Ave are a little more clear. These images are from the sales material posted on the developer's website. Trader Joe's will go on the first floor with an escalator separating it from Staples in the same building. On top will be a Michael's, which is kind of like Staples, isn't it? How many magic markers and oak tag can one building sell?

Anyway, who cares about those two. Expect TJ's to be open in the Fall. Congratulations to Robert K. Futterman & Associates. The Trader Joe's Forest Hills signing is up for the REBNY Deal of the Year award. It's the only real estate deal outside of Manhattan nominated.
