Wal-Mart could move into City Square, acting as the new retail project’s anchor tenant. The proposed deal has caused opposition amongst nearby residents, who had been hoping to see a more upscale list of tenants at the waterfront complex. Miami City Commissioner Marc Sarnoff has been among the most outspoken, criticizing the company’s sale of largely foreign-made products, and saying that the retailer is not likely to help bring foot traffic to the area.
