[Update: 11:42 a.m.] Two big-box retailers are set to open their doors this week at Flushing’s new Sky View Parc complex. A new 180,000-square-foot Target will open to the public tomorrow morning at 8 a.m., a spokesperson for the retailer confirmed today, while Marshalls said it will debut a mere 24 hours later.

This is Target’s third store in Queens, and the soft opening precedes its planned grand opening this weekend, coinciding with its launch of 10 new stores nationwide Oct. 10 — 10/10/10.

The Sky View Parc location, part of a three-story, 800,000-square-foot shopping center situated below six residential towers, comes on the heels of Target’s first Manhattan store in East Harlem, which opened this summer.

While the retailer has announced plans in the past to rev up its urban expansion strategy, officially, there are no other New York City locations in the works just yet. However, “we’re always looking for opportunities,” the spokesperson said. “We’re very happy with our Target East Harlem store.”

Marshalls’ 37,510-square-foot space in Sky View Parc is its 84th in the New York market, and the new store is expected to bring 60 full and part-time jobs to the community, the company said.

Sky View Parc’s commercial mall is over 75 percent leased, representatives for the project said. BJ’s Wholesale Club, Bob’s Discount Furniture and Best Buy are already open, while Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar, Bed Bath & Beyond, Old Navy, Payless ShoeSource and Chuck E. Cheese’s have all signed on for space and are expected to open soon.

As for the condominiums above, Stephen Ross’ the Related Companies was brought on to replace Muss Development in its sales and leasing role earlier this year in an effort to speed things up. Private equity firm Onex is now the general partner in the project. According to the latest figures from project representatives, closings have begun in Tower 3, which is over 70 percent sold. Tower 1 is over 35 percent sold, they said.
