Midtown Miami Walmart Redesign Would Include Non-Walmart Store Fronts
|via The Herald|
The move is clearly designed to mesh better with the other main retail building of Midtown. That building houses several big box stores, including a Target and a Marshalls, but features several street level smaller business and restaurants.
According to the Miami Herald, the space would be a joint venture between Walmart and Midtown Opportunities (which owns most of the undeveloped property in the area).
The space would have room for between four and six new restaurants or stores, and would face Midtown Boulevard between NW 31st and 29th streets.
The new plans were submitted to the City of Miami in an amended permit proposal. If Walmart gets city approval, they hope to start building this summer and open by the end of 2014.
