TARGET signed a lease to open a store on the bottom floors of the Citi Building in Court Square according to The New York Post.
More specifically, they are getting a dedicated ground floor entrance, the whole second floor, and part of the third floor of the 4-story One Court Square annex which is connected to the tower.
Of course that tower is now topped with the name ‘Altice’ not Citi as of a year ago, but that’s merely semantics. Anyway, time moves on and central LIC is about to get it’s first Box store, though at 31,000 square feet I wouldn’t call it a Big Box store.
//ELECTION 2021, Jimmy Van Bramer is out, coming in a distant third in the run for Queens Borough President and conceding, leaving Donovan Richards slightly edging Elizabeth Crowley 42% to 40% in a tight race that probably won’t be called until July due to ranked choice voting.
Similarly, Julie Won holds a small lead over Amit Bagga 18.4% to 17.6% after the first count of the District 26 City Council primary, with no other candidates over 10% in the 15-person field. Once again check back in July.

Still crumbs compared to Amazon really. Politicians should be advocates for us…more jobs and tax revenues are still pivotal to help infrastructure and all the investments we still need…the politicians should be reaching out to Amazon or other big companies to help build the area out the way we prefer. Target is a positive step forward for the neighborhood though.
