A CVS/pharmacy will be occupying the ground floor retail space at Hunter’s Point South Commons, according to published reports.
The drug store will be occupying more than 11,000 square feet of the ground floor space at 1-50 50th Avenue, according to the Commercial Observer. The space represents most of the 13,500 square foot retail space in the building.
Frank Monterisi, a senior vice president of Related, told the Observer that CVS is likely to move into the space by the end of the year. The store’s frontage will be along Second Street.
“I think CVS was very strategic in that they saw a great location,” Monterisi told the Observer, noting that the Hunter’s Point South development will include 5,000 residential units upon completion.
Hunters Point is currently served by Duane Reade, located at 47-02 5th Street, as well as some independent pharmacies.
Related aims to sign on a restaurant operator for the remaining 2,500 square feet of space. This space faces the park.

I heard Shake Shack was going to lease the restaurant space.
From where? Link please!
I see you.
They should have put a bowling alley there.
CVS is good to have in the area, though we really need a Trader Joe’s or Fairway!
fairway went bankrupt.
They emerged from Chapter 11 months ago. This is why you will never be a journalist.
I think our overpriced unnecessary organic food need is being met by Food Cellar. Let’s get more basic requirements out of the way first.
Oh please be open 24 hours, please, please.
I don’t care big or small. We really need a pharmacy in court square.
A CVS in Court Square would be great.
Support small business not these big corporate goons!
We need one on Vernon, not on Center
No way!!!! It’s bad enough we have a Dunkin’ Donuts there.
YES! my dreams have come true!! I can’t wait!
Your dreams are not very lofty.
I’m a simple gal 🙂
Hey I like your style. You single?
Ladies and gentlemen I present to you, without judgement, what NYC and LIC has become.
I love the supermarket that is also in this neighborhood but it’s WAY too expensive. This neighborhood is all about wealth.
