Target is making itself a Philly staple.
The retail giant has opened up several locations around Philly in the past few years, and just this week a local property owner hinted at yet another.
A new, seven-story, mixed used development is coming to a lot at 5th and Bainbridge streets, and the property’s owner and developer, Harvey Spear, said the building will have a “red bull’s eye,” PlanPhilly reported.
Spear went on to tell the site that the retail section of the $35 million development will have some food and a pharmacy. The development will also be home to 50 luxury apartments and a parking garage, PlanPhilly reported.
If a Target is actually coming to the Queen Village lot, it will be the latest in a number of developments for the retailer around the city. They opened one store at 11th and Chestnut streets in 2016, followed by an announcement that another Target is expected to open in Northern Liberties this summer. They even claimed a spot in the major Lincoln Square development at Broad and Washington streets.
A community meeting about the project will be held at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at 327 South Street, PlanPhilly reported.
