The Minneapolis-based retailer announced that it will be the first store in the restored Carson Pirie Scott building. It will call this "the small-format store" a CityTarget.

It has been reported in the Chicago Tribune that the retailer will take 124,000 square feet over two floors, using 54,000 square feet of the space for a selling floor.

“I applaud Target for bringing this urban store concept to Chicago, as well as the new jobs and economic opportunity this store will create,” said Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, in a released statement. “Target will be an important addition to State Street, one of Chicago’s most important retail centers, and will be located in one of the city’s most architecturally significant buildings.”
