Target seems to be following in the footsteps of Walmart and Amazon in building a giant warehouse. There’s a site in Pasco County they appear to be ‘targeting’.
The new facility in Pasco County would be a ‘logistics center’ off I-75. The site is over 160 acres, and according to Tampa Bay Business Journal, rumors point to Target planning on a 1.1 million-square-foot facility. Only Amazon.com and Target have been taking up space that large on their own.
The site is the northeast area of where I-75 and State Road 52 intersect. Target announced in March that it would be investing $5 billion in its operations. This would be considered a huge investment by Target in Pasco County. Target looking in Pasco County would be the second big win for Pasco following Amazon’s plan for a ‘robotic fulfillment center’ off State Road 52.
Walmart built facilities in Polk County totaling 2 million square feet. Amazon built a 1 million-square-foot fulfillment center in Ruskin.
