Thor Equities and representatives of BJ’s Wholesale Club will be joining officials and business leaders this morning to break ground on a new, 200,000 square foot BJ’s Wholesale Club at 1752 Shore Parkway in Bay Ridge.

1752 Shore Parkway is located next door to Caesar’s Bay Shopping Center, which currently has tenants such as Kohl’s, Best Buy, Modell’s and Toys R Us.

Thor says it has accelerated the time frame for the project to send a message that "Brooklyn is getting back to business" after Superstorm Sandy.

This particular location is in "Zone B" on the hurricane map, according to  Zone B has a "moderate likelihood of evacuation if a hurricane is expected to reach NYC."

The Gravesend Bay store will create over 300 Brooklyn planning, construction and personnel jobs, according to Thor.

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, Assemblyman Alec Brook-Krasny and Councilman Domenic Recchia are set to be among the officials at the groundbreaking.

Other community and business reps set to attend are Brooklyn COC President Carlo Scissura, Thor Equities CEO Joseph Sitt, and BJ’s Wholesale Club Regional Manager Dan Smith.
