THE BRONX - A new mall is on its way to the commercial strip in Hunts Point.

The Crossings Mall will include a Deals store, a McDonald's and a Red Lobster restaurant.

The Red Lobster will be an especially big change. Officials say the restaurant will be 9,000-square feet, with seating for more than 300 customers. It's also expected to employ about 200 workers.

Community Board 2 says the mall will help boost the local economy in an area that hasn't seen a major redevelopment in the last 10 years.

Construction is expected to begin in the next few months and be completed in the fall of 2015.
