Target’s First Ever South Beach Store Is Rising

BLVD at Lenox, a multi-level retail center that will include the first ever Target in Miami Beach, is now rising.

Target is coming to South Beach, which means residents will no longer have to leave the island to get their Target fix.  The retailer will open its first small-format store at 33,000-square-feet in South Florida at BLVD at Lenox, a four-story retail development being built by Michael Comras’ MAC 1045 5th St. LLC, according to a press release. The 33,000-square-foot store is slated to open in the spring of 2019.

The 82,000-square-foot building, designed by Zyscovich Architects, will have three floors of retail, with parking on the third, fourth and rooftop levels. The project is a block away from Fifth and Alton, a retail complex anchored by Best Buy, Publix and Total Wine & More.

Target’s small format stores are in major cities, dense suburban neighborhoods and near college campuses. The retailer plans to have more than 130 of the smaller stores by the end of 2019, according to the release.

The Miami Beach location will have men’s, women’s, kids’ and baby apparel and accessories, swimwear and beach gear, home and decor, health, personal care and beauty products, and a grocery section with fresh produce, grab-and-go items, snacks and meals. It will also offer Target’s pickup order service.
