Target Taking Root on Jericho Turnpike

Work crews preparing 17-acre site for new store.

Significant work is underway on the 17-acre site that will eventually be home to a new Target store on Jericho Turnpike.

The one-acre store will take up more than 150,000 square feet on the former Huntington Townhouse site.

On Friday, work crews were busy on the wall at the rear of the property that will consist of irrigated landscaping, the town Planning Department said. Site plans show considerable landscaping and a sidewalk between the road and the building, set back about 45 feet. The beginnings of a structure are visible from Jericho Turnpike.

Spokeswomen for the retail giant have declined requests for information about a timetable for completing the work or how many people it expects to employ.

 Lowe's, which had planned to build on the site, pulled back on plans in November 2011.

No question K-Mart will close-there is no comparison.

This store will do well in this location.

Are you saying that gangs only shop at Target?

Glad it's going to open. We currently drive to Target in Farmingdale for most of the items they sell.
