Boom Town: West Lakeview getting Target... just like Brooklyn! UPDATE: Could be bigger Whole Foods

The new "city sized" Target site at 3201 N Ashland, Chicago IL 60657 (the Lincoln and Belmont intersection) in Lakeview (all photos Bob DePalma, Broker, Kale Realty).

UPDATE  2/7/15: This location will likely be a new Whole Foods Market
In case you have not heard the busy, bustling Ashland / Lincoln / Belmont intersection in the western portion of Lakeview (the moniker West Lakeview has stuck) will be getting a city Target store.  Here are some photos we took of the demolition site just before the December holiday season hit.

Going smaller for  "big box" stores in vibrant, dense locations are reported as a trend.  Brooklyn is getting a Target... that makes Lakeview cool too right?

There is also a new retail development leasing space at Ashland and School across the street from the Whole Foods Market (retail photo below). This is truly a location that has everything withing walking distance... grocery, gyms, dry cleaners, coffee shops, cafes, restaurants, clothes and small to big box retail.

New "vanilla box" retail is being marketed at West School and North Ashland in Lakeview
