It’s happening, man. It’s finally happening!
Down at the Planning Department, they’re inking up the rubber “APPROVED” stamp for our new Target Store up at Geary and Masonic.

The project sponsor proposes to convert vacant retail space (formerly “The Good Guys” and “Mervyns”)
in the City Center shopping mall to a general merchandise retail store (d.b.a. “Target”) offering clothing,
personal accessories, household goods, including home furnishings, electronics and groceries, which is a
“formula retail use” as defined in Planning Code Section 703.3. The proposed project, occupying the
former Mervyns and Good Guys stores, will consist of approximately 106,000 square feet of retail space,
with a potential to add an additional 14,000 square feet if vacant space becomes available within the
shopping center, for a project total of approximately 120,000 square feet. The proposal involves interior
remodeling work as well as exterior improvements including signage, which would require the creation
of a Special Sign District. (The Planning Code text amendment for the “City Center Special Sign District”
under Case No. 2011.0656T will be heard concurrently with the Conditional Use request.) The existing
City Center shopping center has approximately 601 off-street parking spaces and five loading spaces; no
additional parking or loading spaces are required or proposed. Pedestrian entrances to the project are
accessible from Geary Boulevard, Masonic Avenue and O’Farrell Street while vehicular accesses are
provided on Masonic Avenue and O’Farrell Street.”
