Big box developer hits the Target in Lancaster, Pa
The 133,500-square-foot department store, which occupies one of the last retail spaces available in the development, will have a grand opening Sunday, according to retail developer R.J. Waters & Assoc. Inc. in Chester County.
The Minneapolis-based company became interested in the site in 2004 after researching demographics from its East Lampeter Township location on Route 30/Lincoln Highway, said Kevin A. Lahn, vice president for the development company.
Rezoning, conditional-use approval and land development approval were required for Target to build on the site, Lahn said. Target purchased transferrable development rights to preserve farmland in another part of the county as part of the project, he said.
