Target Coming to The University of Texas


Target is going to bring a new kind of store to the edge of the University of Texas campus, the Austin Business Journal reports.  

Located in Dobie Twenty21, which is a mixed-use building with student apartments and retail at the corner of 21st and Guadalupe, the store will comprise 22,000 square feet and will cater to students with special offerings like ready made foods, products for dorm rooms, and Longhorn clothing and accessories.

Target has 31 of these stores, called flexible-format, across the country and is planning to build 26 more in the next three years.  A regular Target is 80,000 to 160,000 square feet.  

Target will be a welcome addition for students in the area, especially those who live on campus or just off-campus and don’t have a car.  

There are a lot of apartment options for UT students who want to live near campus to concentrate on their studies.  Uptown at University Park is located just north of campus and has studio, one and two bedroom apartments featuring ten foot ceilings, washers and dryers, modern kitchens, wood style flooring, trash chutes and valet waste.  The community has downtown and Hill Country views, elevators, a multi-level parking garage with remote access, rooftop deck, and onsite retail.

River Oaks Apartments are also located just north of UT and feature cool midcentury design, are pet friendly, have spacious open floorplans, large closets, washer/dryer connections, and multiple flooring options.  

Red Oaks Apartments is a small community in west campus that features 38 one bedroom apartments with faux wood floors, free parking, paid gas and trash, on-site laundry facilities and a courtyard.  

Penthouse Apartments are also in West Campus, just minutes from UT and downtown, and have on-site laundry facilities, retro ceramic and brick walls, multiple flooring options, have on-site recycling and are pet friendly.
