Target is coming to downtown Manhattan, where it will open one of its flexible format stores, reports said.

The retailer announced Thursday that it had signed a lease for a new location at 255 Greenwich St. in Tribeca, according to published reports.

At about 45,000 square feet, the flexible format will be a smaller store featuring smaller packaging for city dwellers; home goods tailored for smaller, urban living spaces; men’s, women’s and kids apparel and shoes; baby care items; beauty items; grab-and-go food; and services that include Target Mobile, order pick-up and a pharmacy, the Tribeca Citizen reported.

The downtown Target will be its second location in Manhattan after Target opened a store in East Harlem in 2010. Its Tribeca location is reportedly expected to open in October 2016.

A Fairway supermarket was slated to take over that space after signing a lease, but never opened a store, according to published reports.
