The 108-year-old Sullivan Center—formerly known as the Carson, Pirie, Scott and Company Building—has been sitting empty since the department store decided to pull out of State Street back in 2007. Now the Chicago Tribune is reporting that Target is making googly eyes at this prime retail space that spans 125,000 square feet over two floors, keeping with the cheap-chic big box chain's recent announcement to open more small-scale urban stores. Designer shoe discounter DSW is also being courted to lease a 25,000 square feet space in the same building. — Chai Lee
