Get ready: There's going to be a Target at the new Metreon complex in just a few short weeks. Traffic will, undoubtedly, be all that much more of a nightmare around Fourth and Fifth Streets, but as LiveSoMa reports, the opening date has been set for October 14, just in time for Halloween and holiday shopping.
We know very little about what the new store on the second floor of the complex will look like, but it's a new, urban, smaller-format version of Target that they're calling City Target. It occupies 85,000 square feet, and will no doubt feature all those designer home-goods and clothing boutiques that make the discount chain so hip-seeming and popular.
Also, the opening will mark the final phase of the Metreon redo, which already features a bunch of new street-facing food businesses like Split Bread, Super Duper, and Chipotle, and will soon include a newly reconfigured entrance at the corner of 4th and Mission.
