LOGAN SQUARE — The small-format Target in the massive Megamall development on Milwaukee Avenue is slated to open April 5, the national chain announced this week.
The new, 27,000-square-foot store at 2434 N. Sacramento Ave. is the largest retailer moving into the luxury apartment complex. Also moving in is Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, Big Wig Tacos, Jersey Mike’s Subs, K-Fire Korean BBQ and Verizon.
The complex as a whole, dubbed Logan Apartments, is expected to open in March with 220 luxury apartments, a mix of studios, one- and two bedroom units, in addition to 62,000 square feet of retail space and a 44-spot parking lot for shoppers.
The seven-story development is split between two buildings connected by a skybridge and anchored by a clock tower. Tenants will have access to an outdoor pool, bocce ball court and a fitness club, among other luxury amenities, when the complex opens.
Neighboring small business owners and managers have mixed feelings ahead of the opening. Some are excited and others are worried about the competition they’ll face once Target and other retailers take over the block.
The Logan Square store will be Chicago’s 12th small-format Target.
Target is hosting a job fair Feb. 5-8 at their 2656 N. Elston Ave. store ahead of the opening. They aim to hire 70 employees. Interested candidates can apply online.
