Wal-Mart Gives In To City's Demands

Wal-Mart modified its standard store design to satisfy the City of Ottawa's requirements for a unique landscape and architectural design that fostered a pedestrian environment.

"Under the plan agreed to yesterday, Wal-Mart has designed a north-facing building without the customary grey seen on most of the company's buildings.The new building will have an earth-tone colour and some architectural highlights designed to break up the view of its exterior walls. "
