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.
