No Target for Downtown Plaza
It looks as though the Downtown Plaza has received yet another blow. The once proposed Target store that was going to add another anchor to the mall has pulled its plans. Last time I counted there were more than a dozen empty store fronts in the mall, so this news about Target is not a big surprise. Westfield Corp. is also planning on spending $60 millions in giving the mall a facelift next year, but from what I have seen from their plans, the “upgrades” won’t do much but shifting things around and put up a giant LED screen. Target has also withdrawn its plans to rebuild a new store at its Broadway and Riverside location… I was even more sad to hear about this.
