Kohl's gets subdivision, to open in February

Jan 01, 2011 3:10 am
John Mason in the Register-Star reports that Tuesday the Greenport Planning Board granted the Widewaters Development Corp. a subdivision for Kohl’s, meaning the new department store will have its own large sign on Fairview Avenue. Mason says there was little comment at a public hearing for the proposal. Marco Marzocchi, general counsel of retail development for the Widewaters Group, told Mason Widewaters is in negotiations with potential tenants for the structure adjoining Kohl’s. "Marzocchi told the Register-Star the subdivision allows Kohl’s to be separately assessed and receive its own tax bill," Mason wrote. "The store can also put up its own monument sign on Ring Road." Previously Marzocchi maintained Kohl's would not open the store without Columbia County granting the chain a Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT). When the county denied Kohl's that tax break (another story is here), they went ahead and will open in February, Mason reports. Kohl's and a Wal-Mart superstore anchor this new plaza, and a TJ Maxx also recently opened there.
