Miami’s Building Department has taken the unusual step of revoking Walmart’s construction permit to build a foundation for their store in Midtown Miami.
The phased construction permit was revoked on Monday. It was issued in December 2015, and foundation work for the 203,000 square foot store began shortly thereafter.
In February, a letter from a city attorney indicated that the permit had been locked due to a lack of unity of title on the property. A partner in the project, Midtown Opportunities, needed to sign a covenant in lieu of unity of title, along with the Midtown Community Development District.
