Retail Roundup: Aldi, Planet Fitness may replace former Pathmark in North Babylon

March 05, 2019

Aldi, Planet Fitness and a self-storage facility are among the proposed tenants in the planned redevelopment of North Babylon Plaza, which used to hold a 53,701-square-foot Pathmark and other businesses at 1251 Deer Park Ave., according to construction documents and an attorney representing the property owner.

The shopping center is owned by North Babylon Associates, an affiliate of Woodmere-based real estate developer Basser-Kaufman.

“We’re just working our way through the process, and we’re hoping to go through the process as quickly as possible, so we can start construction,” said North Babylon Associates’ attorney, Anthony S. Guardino, a partner in Uniondale-based law firm Farrell Fritz P.C.

Aldi and Planet Fitness are likely to be anchors in the proposed retail building, and both have expressed interest in opening locations in the shopping center, Guardino told the Babylon Planning Board in October.

Johnson Development Associates Inc., of Spartanburg, South Carolina, would own the self-storage building, which would be operated as Extra Space Storage, he told the board.

None of the tenants has been finalized, Guardino said last week.
