Pittsburgh Planning Fee approves Downtown Goal within the former Kaufmann Constructing – CBS Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Planning Commission has approved a Target deal in the old Kaufmann building in downtown, according to the Pittsburgh Business Times.

Target confirmed in July that it had plans to get to downtown Pittsburgh.

Jeremy Waldrup, President and CEO of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, told KDKA earlier this summer that it was one of Target’s smaller urban stores, where product choices are tailored to the needs of the neighborhood in which it is located.

The Pittsburgh Business Times reports that the store will be 22,000 square feet.

There will be a primary entrance on Smithfield Street and a secondary entrance on Fifth Avenue, both of which already exist.

Macy’s took over the building when it acquired Kaufmann’s department store in 2005. In 2015 it was announced that Macy’s would be closing, and the iconic retail spaces have long been empty.
