I am hearing that Target put its signature red sign up last week on the Pavilion Building on the southwest-ish corner of Preston Road and Northwest Highway, across from the parking garage where a potential tenant not too long ago (early 2015) wanted to build a skybridge to get a grocery store in the second floor space.

The Pavilion Building is on Westchester Drive and Berkshire Lane.

This will be Target’s first “small-format” store in the Dallas area, and I can hardly wait. It’s small-format at 54,700 square feet. I love Target and everything they carry, but I am getting to not like Big Box stores. It just takes too long to park, get in the store, and find what you are looking for. It’s like asking for a back-ache with a headache on the side. Ditto humungo grocery stores: Central Market at Preston Royal manages to have everything I could ever need and more and do it in 30,000 ish square feet. 

The new target store will have its grand opening Oct. 21, just in time for Halloween. 

That’s so 2015: proposed skybridge at Preston Center Pavilion.
