Price Chopper Plaza At Vails Gate Adding 8,000 SF Of
Additional Retail Shops
By Edie Johnson
The 5-corners intersection at Vails Gate is already a bustling business center. Now Goddard Development Partners is in the midst of building additional retail space that will include a Starbucks Coffee Shop, a Pet Supplies Plus store, and room for several additional retail stores in the middle. The intersection is one of the busiest in Orange County with about 64,000 vehicles passing through per day.
This week the Goddard family held an informal “meet and greet” with local officials that included Colin Schmitt, Chief of Staff in New Windsor (also a candidate for the assembly seat being vacated by James Skoufis, Assemblyman and Candidate for Senate James Skoufis, contractors who have already erected the main frame, and a crowd of interested individuals who were treated to snacks and a few speeches while the heavens alternately poured rain and sparked lightning strikes with tornado warnings being announced just a short distance north.
Adrian and Donna Goddard thanked New Windsor for the help and the support offered during this new phase of development. Schmitt thanked them for giving additional opportunities to residents for shopping options, an increase in tax rateables, along with potential job opportunities. The site is also zoned for potential medical use.
The Goddards also own Storm King Golf Course and Tavern in Mountainville, which is open to the public as a restaurant as well as its 9-hole golf course that offers some of the most spectacular scenery in the area.
