With the Planning Commission meeting which could clear the way for Target to open an “Express” store at 1830 Ocean Avenue scheduled for next week, we now have the official renderings and answers to a few key FAQs:
1. Of the 103 parking spaces in the building’s garage, 26 will be allocated to the Target. No word, however, on how Target plans to keep others from bogarting their spaces.
2. The proposed hours of operation are from 7am to 11pm, seven days a week. And…
3. A Starbucks-branded Target Café is part of the project.
While the store is certainly Formula Retail, San Francisco’s Planning Department recommends the Target be approved, noting that the project “would fill a vacancy on a relatively prominent block” and is “desirable for, and compatible with the surrounding neighborhood.”
And if approved, Target is aiming to have the Ocean Avenue store online by the end of the year.
