Target Could Be Coming To North Beach, Would Become Their Second Store In Miami Beach

Target recently opened a store in South Beach, and now the company could be looking to open a similar store in North Beach.

Pacific Star Capital is proposing to buy a city owned parking lot next to 71st Street and combine it with their own property to build the multi-level project. The company has also developed a Whole Foods in North Miami.

The Target store would be around 33,000 square feet – similar in size to the smaller format store recently opened in South Beach, and much smaller than the Midtown Miami store.

In a letter, the developer said the Target store would be located on the second floor.

A total of 72,000 square feet of retail would be built on two levels of the new shopping center, along with a 237-space parking garage.

Miami Beach’s commission sent the proposal to the Finance & Citywide Projects Committee last week.

The Real Deal first reported plans for the project.

what’s going on here? There are more people than ever living in the core of downtown Miami/Brickell and haven’t even seen a Target store being proposed.

Developers in these areas would rather propose some small shop space that rents for 3/4 times then deal with the headache of working with national retailers, most of whom still have a very suburban mindset and dont like taking risk on urban property that isnt in a traditional city like NY Chicago etc.

Miami Beach gets another Target, and Miami gets no Target on Flagler Street Downtown where it would work in the former Macy’s, and an undead Welefaremart where it’s against gentlemen’s agreements Walmart and Target don’t be in the same development. Sad!

Do the math. It is far cheaper (for me) to take Lyft instead of owning a car. Car= Lease payments, insurance, parking costs with street side parking when needed, maintenance costs on the car, gasoline costs…… Also, on Brickell, I can sell my parking space and actually make money. The idea of owning a car is kinda 19th Century…. not yet, but almost.

Build a real urban store without parking. The South Beach store has too much parking.

Why? People here in Miami actually like to drive their cars.

Maybe Miami but the South Beach store isn’t in Miami.

A lot of people moved to South Beach because it’s arguably the easiest place to live in Dade without a car.

Yeah, literally everybody knows that. It’s become a colloquialism, one that literally everybody understands, but go off I guess…

If you’re too broke to drive a car then how profitable a customer are you?

Join us in the 21st century! Lots of people are choosing to not own cars, or to use them less frequently.

I’m 62 and don’t drive, never have. I can assure you I am far from broke, very far.
