Target and City Winery Coming to State Street

The Target at NYC's Times Square has an urban feel.
Target is coming to State St. Mayor Daley confirmed the rumors this week at a press conference with Target executives. The new downtown store will occupy two floors (125,000 square feet) in the former Carson Pirie Scott building. According to various reports, Target has been eying the State St. location for over a year. The new store will be a "CityTarget" that will focus its product mix with urban dwellers in mind. Target plans to open the State St. location in 2012.

In addition to Target, City Winery may be coming to the first floor of the historic Louis Sullivan building. City Winery is a winery, restaurant, and small concert space. The original City Winery opened about a year ago in New York City's Soho neighborhood. City Winery is a concept developed by music promoter Michael Dorf who founded the Knitting Factory.

What do you think of Target and City Winery coming to State St.?


  1. that is welcome news in a beautiful old building but I still do miss Carsons.

  2. It sounds like Target is keeping some of the architectural features intact, which is nice. We'll get to see some of that building's former glory when restored.

  3. Where have you been, Saddam? You're usually more current with my posts.
