Yep. The still-in-redevelopment Bayshore Town Center (which we think dropped “town center” from its name, even though it plans to become more of a town center than ever before) is getting a Target. A two-story Target! It’ll be in the old Boston Store space. There’s currently no opening date.

The Glendale open-air mall/shopping center/town hall will debut its renovated public square on July 10. They also knocked down the food court portion of the old mall, which sucks. (They’re gonna build a hotel, more apartments, and more office space there.) At least we have eerie memories…

Here’s the Target press release for people who have long been obsessed with getting a another Target in the immediate Milwaukee area:

MILWAUKEE (June 30, 2020) – Bayshore is pleased to announce it has entered into a lease agreement with the best-in-class, leading national retailer, Target. The exact opening date of the 128,512 square-foot, two-story retail space is not yet determined. Mid-America Real Estate – Wisconsin, LLC represented both Bayshore and Target on the lease transaction.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome Target as an anchor tenant of the new and revitalized Bayshore,” said Kirk Williams, managing director for Cypress Equities. “From day one we have done our best to listen to the community and respond to the shopping, dining and entertainment experiences that they desire, and Target remained at the top of their list and ours.”

Construction is underway on the new Target store which will be located on the east side of the property on Fountainview Drive adjacent to the Lydell Avenue parking garage, in the former Boston Store.

The newly envisioned Bayshore will feature many enhancements and upgrades to the property including more local and national retailers and merchants, as well as unique and curated restaurant and pop-up concepts. The recreated town square, newly-named The Yard, has been designed as a family-friendly community space and will host year-round entertainment and activities such as concerts, festivals, etc. Additionally, Bayshore is excited to offer guests an immersive art experience through the Bayshore Art Project, which will eventually showcase work from more than 30 local artists throughout the property.
