WASHINGTON, DC-Wal-Mart, which has three stores currently under construction here, is reworking plans for two other planned store locations in the District.
In regards to its planned store on East Capitol Street, the D.C. Housing Authority and its partner, A&R Cos., drew up plans for a Wal-Mart-anchored project in August, but have made enhancements to the proposal. Last week plans were submitted that call for a more modern design for the Wal-Mart store, as well as a mixed-use 283-unit apartment building and a 21,000-square-foot office building, according to the Washington Post.
At its planned project on New York Avenue NE, developer Rick Walker had planned to build a 124,000-square-foot Wal-Mart atop a Lowe’s home improvement store. However, after Lowe’s backed out of the project, he has since signed a lease with Burlington Coat Factory, which will open a 65,000-square-foot store beneath the Wal-Mart.
