A proposed Target for Ardmore is getting closer to final approval.

The Building and Planning Committee of the Board of Commissioners recommended approval of a plan that would construct a new mixed-use building on the site of an old car wash and an empty parking lot at the corner of Lancaster and Ardmore avenues in Ardmore.

But despite the overall approval of the plan, one portion of it was rejected. And presuming the full board agrees with that rejection recommendation, it could change the way the building looks and whether the board will see it again after next week’s Commissioners’ meeting.

The overall recommendation to approve the project is expected to go before the Board of Commissioners Nov. 15 for the “preliminary land development plan, showing the consolidation of four existing parcels; construction of a new, five-story mixed-use building with a 27,268-square-foot footprint containing 32,000 square feet of retail space on two levels and 35 apartments on the upper stories; construction of an underground parking garage and one level of at-grade parking located below and behind the building to provide a total of 84 on-site parking spaces; and construction of an underground stormwater management system.”

The retail space will be for what is being called a mini-Target store.
