Target Is Coming to the Metreon

Boom: Target's on its way to the second floor of the Metreon, according to Friday's San Francisco Business Times, marking the first Target in the City in uh... ever?

According to the story, Metreon owner Westfield has "gone silent" on a bunch of second floor tenant talks in order to "make way for a single tenant."

That tenant is said to be Target— a move that might quiet clamors for a Target in the deserted Mervyn's space on Geary and Masonic, or more desperate hopes for one in the planned CityPlace mall in Mid-Market.

The move would also shift the Metreon's center of gravity slightly away from its newfound foodie-ness, but in the long haul, that probably doesn't really matter. It's Target.

Naturally, the vendors that have already signed on aren't thrilled. Says La Boulange's Thomas Lefort: "As far as bringing people to the center, of course, it’s hard to beat...But it’s not what we were told to expect for that space. I’m not sure what I think about it."
