United States

Crossgates Commons is a large shopping plaza in Albany, New York. It is owned by The Pyramid Company, but may be sold in the near future.[1] Crossgates Commons is located on Washington Avenue Extension and is roughly across the street from Crossgates Mall, which is also managed by Pyramid. The shopping center has a split-level design with stores on the upper level accessible from the front and stores on the lower level accessible from the rear. It opened in 1994 and has 1,300,000 square feet (120,000 m2) of retail space. Although Crossgates Commons is relatively young, it has already undergone an expansion, and some locations have had high turnover rates.

When the shopping center first opened in 1994, it had six original tenants: Walmart (then branded as Wal-Mart), Sam's Club, Home Depot, Media Play, Old Navy, and MJ Designs.

The Walmart located at Crossgates Commons became the largest Walmart in the United States (and the largest outside of China) in 2008, when it expanded into a Walmart Supercenter, now occupying 260,000 square feet (24,000 m2) over two floors.[2]
