Walmart closing could make way for a new residential high-rise in White Plains

The Walmart in White Plains is closing its doors by Aug. 10 — and it’s possible the property could eventually become a residential development. The company is looking to reopen the store in a new location, as the existing outpost wasn’t performing well, and customers didn’t like the parking garage setup, LoHud reported. Martin Deitch, executive vice president with Hartsdale-based commercial real estate firm Aries Deitch & Endelson told the outlet the soon-to-be-vacant location on Main Street could be ideal for a high-rise residential project. “It’s perfectly situated, not far from the train station,” Deitch said. “It would make all sense in the world to repurpose the asset to residential.” [LoHud]
