Target Cancelled This Downtown San Diego Store in The New Radian Tower

A 36,000 sq. ft. Target store was initially planned as part of the new residential tower on 10th and G Street in downtown San Diego. The Radian is a 22-story, 255,000-square-foot building with 241 multi-family residences. Target’s store was to be located on the eastern end of the building.

The Radian was built approximately 500 yards north of Petco Park stadium, the San Diego Padres’ home. However, Target decided not to proceed with a new downtown San Diego location. Below are aerial and street images showing the location history.
