The First Urban Walmart
Dan Malouf says it is too early to see architectural renderings, but he has spoken with developers involved in the projects about what to expect. Looking at one of the locations, Malouf says that the site will not be mixed-use, like another project that was slated to be built there originally.
"The goods news, though, is that Wal-Mart appears dedicated to providing a fundamentally urban store at this location. It will greet the street and it will not have any surface parking out front. These are real victories for the community, and represent a real evolution for Wal-Mart as a corporation."
