South Los Angeles might be getting a new Target store.

According to Curbed L.A., a developer is proposing a Target-anchored shopping mall in Leimert Park, not far from the Expo Line.

"Local firm Charles Company, which is developing the project, wants to put up a mall containing a Target, a Ralphs, Marshalls, Dress for Less, and other retailers at the corner of Crenshaw Boulevard and Rodeo Road, just blocks from the famous West Angeles Church of God In Christ," Curbed L.A. reports.

The City Council approved the six-acre development on Friday.

Target is also planning a new store at Sunset Boulevard and Western Avenue in Hollywood. It's a three-level store: There are two levels of parking, and the store is on top.

The lower-level parking will have retail too. There is a total of 458 parking spaces. The store will be 80 feet tall, much taller than what is usually allowed.
