That’s right, next week Target will officially request authorization to build a urbanified store at the corner of Geary and Masonic at the site of our defunct Mervyns, that brokedown palace.

Will this empty hulk be filled with stuff from Tar-ghey by Spring, 2012?
Look at all these Target boosters. There were some NIMBYs on hand at this community meeting last year, you know, to speak out, but they kept their big traps shut in the face of overwhelming support for the Target store:
One of the audience members at that time was “…surprised to see the crowd’s support of the project given that ‘all you hear in the media’ is that San Francisco is ‘anti-chain.‘”
X, sort of, marks the spot. To the northwest is the relatively new Masonic Trader Joes. See it?
Don’t count on the windmills though. (They’re what you call chimerical.)
Now, would Megan Fox chop up a NoPA NIMBY and stuff him in a desk if it would help speed this project along?
Does San Francisco support its two new Target stores?
