WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The city of West Lafayette approved the rezoning for a new building that will feature a Target on the first floor.
The building will be at the corner of Northwestern Avenue and State Street. The store will be a part of the more than 7,800 square feet of retail space in the building. There will be 36 apartments of different sizes above the store.
Mayor John Dennis said the building will accomodate the needs of the growing student body, while also providing a rare shopping experience.
"We're just delighted that we were able to land Target, and they're bringing sort of a unique style of Target to our location that's going to be specific to a college environment,"said Dennis. "It's going to be a little smaller than their standard brand Target, but it's going to be more suitable to a college based population."
The building is set to be five stories tall and will be completed by the fall of 2019. The city estimates the total cost ofthe project to be $7 million.
