Target is expanding in a big hurry in Manhattan, with two stores expected to open in the not-too-distant future on the Upper West Side. And now a third one is coming, just a little farther along the 2-3 line. The Post reports that Target is opening a 44,000-square-foot store at 121 West 125th Street, near a subway stop on that block.
On the Upper West Side, Target is opening one store at 61st Street and Broadway this fall and another at 795 Columbus Avenue near 98th Street.
The store on 61st is expected to open in the fall; the opening timeline for the other store hasn’t been confirmed yet. Target is expanding just as many other chains reduce their footprint in New York, or abandon the city entirely.
The new Target is part of an ambitious new real estate project, the Post reports.
The ever-growing Target brand will be part of an ambitious new 17-story project between Malcolm X and Adam Clayton Powell boulevards named the Urban League Empowerment Center. The mini-tower designed by Beyer Blinder Belle will house a new headquarters for the venerable nonprofit dedicated to advocacy and economic empowerment for African Americans.
