The Shops at Atlas Park is an open-air lifestyle center located in the Glendale neighborhood of Queens, New York City, United States. The center is located at the intersection of Cooper Avenue and 80th Street.

The Shops at Atlas Park opened in April 2006, encompassing the site of the former 25-acre (100,000 m2) Atlas Terminals industrial park.[1] The industrial park, which at one time housed companies such as General Electric, Kraft, Westinghouse, and New York Telephone, was redeveloped after years of struggling to find tenants. Four of the buildings ranging in size from 13,000 to 93,000 square feet[2] were renovated as part of the center, and sixteen buildings in the vicinity of Cooper Avenue and 80th Street were demolished and replaced by a 2.3-acre (9,300 m2) landscaped park.

Major tenants in the center include Regal Cinemas, TJ Maxx, ULTA, Foot Locker, California Pizza Kitchen,Chili's, Johnny Rockets, White House Black Market, and New York Sports Club.[3] Atlas Park has been in foreclosure since February 2009 and was sold to The Macerich Company in February 2011 for $54 million.[4]

It is served by the Q29, Q47, and Q54; no New York City Subway stations are nearby, but the closest station is 1.3 miles (2.1 km) away at Middle Village – Metropolitan Avenue (M train)[5][6]
