Located at 12675 N.W. Cornell Road, the 49,000-square-foot store will be a small-format Target, much like existing Target locations near college campuses or urban neighborhoods.

The opening has been a long time coming for Cedar Mill residents. Target hosted a neighborhood meeting back in October 2020, and Washington County approved the company's application to change the use of the space from a grocery store in March 2021.

Permitting and renovations have been ongoing since then, and Target finally put up official signage at the site earlier this year.

A June 15 press release said Target will share more specific details as the grand opening date gets closer, including how the store will be tailored to serve the neighborhood.
