Target is planning to open a store at the Grove at Wesley Chapel, according to a news release.
The planned 148,500-square-foot building will be built on a currently vacant 16-acre lot near some big box retailers.
The location is just south of Cost Plus World Market, at the southeast corner of the intersection of Oakley Boulevard and Pink Flamingo Lane.
In addition to Target, the Grove, at 6105 Wesley Grove Blvd., will become home to nearly 10,000 apartment dwellings within the next two years, says the news release from the Grove.
In addition to these new projects, the 250-acre property features numerous national tenants, including Best Buy, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Michaels, Old Navy, PetSmart, Planet Fitness, TJ Maxx and Ulta.
The property also boasts a container park made of shipping containers that offer different cuisines from all over the world and boutique retail shops — all run by small business owners.
“With all the families moving into Wesley Chapel, it just makes sense to bring in a Target,” Mark Gold, partner in Mishorim Gold, said in the release.
Mishorim Gold purchased the Grove for $64 million in September 2019.
Gold invested millions more into the renovation of the property.
“Target is a household name and the perfect retail partner for our bustling community,” he added in the release.
Grove Mini Golf recently opened, and other future businesses coming include a Starbucks, Woodie’s Wash Shack and a national car rental chain.
Two housing developments also are taking shape around the property: 300 multifamily units just north of the B&B movie theater are under construction, and 418 units in a development called Grove West are under construction across Oakley Boulevard.
