Fear and uncertainty swept through Elmhurst in early May when the Chair of CB4, Louis Walker, surprisingly announced at a community board meeting that the Queens Place Mall on Queens Blvd would close by the end of this year and that anchor tenant Target would relocate to the Metro Mall on Metropolitan Avenue in Middle Village. He surmised that the building would then either be demolished for housing or repurposed for retail. A few days later, after denials from Target and Queens Place management, Mr. Walker recanted his statement. We don’t know where he received his information or what the real truth is, but time will tell.
