Dear Mr. Cornell:
I hope this email finds you well. My intention is to explore the possibility to open Target in Monterrey City, State of Nuevo Leon, Mexico. This is the reason why I am contacting you.
At the present time, I am working with a group of Mexican investors, developing a residential complex called San Eugenio www.saneugenio.com in Allende City, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
Moreover, the property where I do believe Target would succeed, if you think so too, has 242,188 square feet. Around this lot, you can find supermarkets including H.E.B, which is just next-door, hospitals, high schools, golf clubs, shopping centers, Home Depot and Costco to mention some points of interest, and nowadays Monterrey City is growing towards this area. A store concept like TARGET would be unique in Mexico...let's start in Monterrey City.
In the following link, you will find a map of Mexico with the location of the property. You just need to zoom in the map or click any of the most relevant places on the map list.
In addition, I would like to say that Monterrey City is the capital and largest city of the state of Nuevo Leon; it is also the third-largest metropolitan area in the nation and the base of many significant international corporations. It is the second wealthiest city in Mexico and the ninth in Latin America.
Monterrey's gross domestic product (GDP) purchasing power parity (PPP) per capita of 31,051 dollars is the highest in the country and second of Latin America. Monterrey is often regarded as the most "Americanized" and developed city in the entire country. Furthermore, as you may know, this community, including us, are frequent customers of yours.
To sum up, my partners and I can take care of all permits and licenses Target could require from the Mexican authorities. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need more information, have any doubt or comment about the content of this letter.
All the best,
