BRONX, NY (August 2021) — Simone Development Companies has announced that Charleys Philly Steaks has signed a 10-year, 1,500-square-foot lease at the Throggs Neck Shopping Center in the Ferry Point section of The Bronx. Charleys Philly Steaks is expected to open to the public in late Fall, marking the national franchise’s second location in The Bronx and fifth in New York City.

“We are thrilled to welcome a national brand like Charleys Philly Steaks to one of the city’s most successful shopping centers,” said Josh Gopan, AVP of Leasing for Simone Development. “Since its opening, Throggs Neck Shopping Center has been extremely attractive to retailers, with the Target among the most active nationally. The successful development has created hundreds of new jobs and boosted the borough’s economy. The shopping center is a testament to Simone’s dedication of repurposing vacant and under-utilized commercial property in the New York metropolitan area.”

Charleys Philly Steaks joins an extensive and diverse roster of tenants including retailers Target, TJ Maxx, Petco, Party City, and Skechers as well as restaurants Starbucks, Applebee’s, Subway, Chipotle, Sarku Japan, among others.
