Walmart Neighborhood Store in N. Oak Cliff
PDF Print E-mail

News of a new Walmart Neighborhood Store was met with mixed reviews last week.  Located on the land of the former Colorado Place Apts, no site plan has been made available to determine if the store will comply with walkable zoning put in place by the Ft. Worth Ave. Development Group. 

Acres of land was acquired 2 years ago and the apartments were demolished only to be followed by the developer going bankrupt following much fanfare and pretty watercolors to the contrary.  The site is one of the largest available tracts that is still available in the North Oak Cliff area and many hoped someone with vision would develop the entire area as previously promised rather than sell it off a bit at a time to folks like Walmart.

OOCCL entered North Oak Cliff in a contest sponsored by This Old House and Preservation Directory last year and we won!!!  One winner was picked from each state which is very impressive.  Not only did we inch out other parts of Dallas, we beat Austin, San Antonio and Houston and small towns like Waxahachie.  While the magazine cannot photograph all 50 states, we are trying to convince them to choose us.

As more info becomes available on the issue and web pressence, we'll alert you.
