Target opening a store in new Hell’s Kitchen condo
Over the summer, Chinese developer Xinyuan Real Estate filed plans to build a seven-story, 105,305- square-foot condominium at 615 Tenth Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen, their second NYC project after the Oosten in Williamsburg. The address had formerly been home to a Hess gas station until Xinyuan bought the site last January for $57.5 million. Their new 82-unit project, dubbed Hudson Garden, will also have a 29,000-square-foot retail base along the western blockfront between West 44th and 45th Streets, for which the Post reports Target has signed a lease.

Target opened its first New York City store in 2010 in Harlem’s East River Plaza. Their latest outpost will have the same flexible format as their recently opened Tribeca store and forthcoming East Village and Downtown Brooklyn locations, offering products tailored to the neighborhood. In this case, they’ll have “men’s and women’s apparel and accessories; apartment-size home items; a grocery area with grab-and-go food items like salads and sandwiches; personal care and beauty items; and portable technology along with its Target Mobile and Order Pickup services.”
Target hopes to open by the summer of 2019; the building’s condos are expected to come online by early 2018. Find future listings for 615 Tenth Avenue at CityRealty.
