The remodel of the FIGat7th shopping center, which includes an urban Target store concept, is rolling right along; blogger Brigham Yen got a hardhat tour from owner Brookfield Office Properties and shares some pictures and video. The store will be known as City Target, one of only a handful of such stores in the nation. While compact and pedestrian-friendly by Target standards, shoppers won't exactly be fighting for space like at the Silver Lake Trader Joe's--there will be 100,000 square feet of discount shopping. Brookfield told Yen that freight elevators were just installed and Target will take over construction in March, for an anticipated Fall 2012 opening. Also: as part of the renovations, the shopping center will get a new bottom-level food court with mainly LA-based eateries.
