It's been a while since we heard anything from City Point—the new Downtown Brooklyn shopping center that displaced Dekalb Market in favor of a massive Century 21 and a (temporary) Armani Exchange—but plenty of retail announcements are about to come out of that development. And the first is CityTarget, an urban-focused version of the Minneapolis-based chain that caters to the needs of city residents.
At 125,000 square feet, it'll take up the entire second floor of the shopping center (Century 21 will be on the third and fourth, while the city's first Alamo Drafthouse will occupy the fifth).
Along with approximately 20 more stores that have yet to be announced—a mix of higher-end brands that'll take up the ground floor, City Point's retail real estate agent told Racked earlier this month—CityTarget aims to open in spring 2016.
