We have a proposal to place a Target store in an existing shopping center. It would involve the demolition of part of the center.
The proposed store is in a new overlay district that requires that the building be 25' from the ROW along a major road. In this case it would be the side of the Target building.
Target refuses to meet almost all of the conditions of the overlay. Instead they have applied for 5 variances. The political support is there to allow the variances to be approved.
Target argues that this is the corporate plan that requires all of their parking be on their lot. They will be putting a large parking lot on the side of the building facing the street (which is strictly forbidden by the overlay).
I want to know if there are any examples of Target stores that have located in infill areas/urban areas that are placed up to the lot line or very close to a street. Pictures if you have them would be greatly appreciated!!
