Broke USC freshmen won't have to trek to DTLA for affordable dorm decor and Market Pantry pizza. Our pal Brigham Yen reveals that a ginormous City Target is expected to join Trader Joe's at the massive mixed-use (and currently under construction) USC Village in fall 2017.
Per the DTLA Rising blogger, "a reliable source [says that the retailer] has signed a lease taking up the majority of retail space" at the 15-acre residential development, which will replace the "outdated" University Village. The $650 million project's retail footprint will land at 115,000 square feet, but "specific details pertaining to this City Target are still unclear," notes Yen.
The blogger also points out that the South LA live-play hub—USC's biggest construction project to date—will likely have room for other shopping and dining options.
In the meantime, let's wish all of those pro-Targé Hollywood residents the best of luck with their in-limbo store.
