Here’s a map a reader sent yesterday apparently showing the location of “Walmart Neighborhood Market #3450,” on Washington Ave, just east of the newly sold Archstone Memorial Heights apartment complex at 201 S. Heights Blvd. (A different Walmart map shows it in the same spot.)
That 77299 ZIP appears to be one of those mostly P.O. box-only codes the USPS uses, and if you try to map it on other sites, it generally pops up downtown in scattered locales. And there’s an existing Walmart Supercenter at 3450 FM 1960 W., for what that’s worth.
Who knows? It is probably just a glitch.
Or maybe the retail behemoth really is planning to build a new neighborhood market roughly 10 blocks away from its Yale St. Supercenter, and right next-door to CityCentre developers’ Midway Cos. new acquisition. Or maybe a Walmart is envisioned as a component of any ground-floor retail that could be coming to a hypothetical mixed-use development coming to the Archstone site.
“I don’t see the developers of CityCentre favoring a Walmart in any iteration especially with it being so close to the Supercenter on Yale St., but the need for grocery stores is pretty high so ya never know,” the reader says.
