Walmart Gets Approved For Demolition Permit In Midtown Miami, Construction Permit Pending

Walmart appears to be moving forward with plans to build a store in Midtown Miami, despite a pending court case challenging city approval of the store.

The company applied for a phased construction permit to build a foundation last week, city records show. Also last week, the city granted approval for a demolition permit for the site.

A case is pending before the Third District Court of Appeals that challenges city approval of the store. The two activists behind the appeal say that they have managed to delay the store for four years now.

Have to say that people fought WalMart and almost won. David vs goliath.

With Target, Ross, and now Walmart, I hope we will see even more businesses coming to Midtown. It would be great to have a Brandsmart, Bed Bath and Beyond, Lowe’s and maybe even an Ikea in the not too distant future.

I actually agree. We need more big box retail closer to as a convenience for these urban locations. People can snicker at Walmart but that’s because as usual most people are simply behind the curve. Walmart has been making inroads and creating smaller stores in cities like DC to much success. Unfortunately when most people think of Walmart they think of the lower income people who live in suburbs. But at the end of the day stores are comprised of the people who live in the community. The area around Midtown is rapidly changing. And people of all socioeconomic backgrounds enjoy the convince of big box retail.
