DII Stores has signed two leases at Cammeby’s International’s 626 Sheepshead Bay Road development in Coney Island, according to the landlord.
In the larger of the two leases, the discount department store, which
sells male and female apparel as well as home products, will occupy
11,600 square feet as the retail anchor of the seven-story office and
retail building under construction near the intersection of West 8th
The company currently operates a shop at nearby 530 Neptune Avenue
between West 6th Street and Marsha Rapaport Way, a building that
Cammeby’s owns and plans to demolish for a 42-story residential tower.
“DII is an important part of the Coney
Island community, so we’re extremely happy that they will remain a
permanent fixture by serving as the anchor tenant,” Jacob Cohen,
executive vice president of development at Cammeby’s, said in a
statement. “The company will also bring its corporate offices to the
property, providing employees with a new, modern work environment.”
