Ground was broken yesterday on the highly anticipated Empire Outlets, planned for Saint George. This celebration was attended by local politicians and SI luminaries, and hosted at Richmond County Ballpark. The shopping complex, which recently announced which stores will be coming to the north shore, is expected to bring high volumes of foot traffic to the Island, as well as millions of dollars worth of job creation:

The project, touted to create more than 1,800 jobs and bring $285 million in private investment on the North Shore of Staten Island, has been several years in the making.

“Empire Outlets is a well-timed catalyst that will trigger the transformation of the North Shore and position Staten Island for sustained growth into the foreseeable future,” said Donald Capoccia, principal at BFC Partners, the developer for the project. [via SILIVE.com]
