Jantzen Beach Center's owners plan a $50 million remodel, bringing 30 new stores and 500 retail jobs.

They even plan to restore the 91-year-old merry-go-round.

Target is moving across the parking lot from where its stood at Jantzen Beach Center with plans to unveil a larger concept store with groceries, similar to its location at Northeast Portland's Cascade Station mall.
