The Real Deal Miami

Miramar Wal-Mart deal dead

August 14, 2009 12:39PM

Critics of the planned 220,000-square-foot Wal-Mart supercenter in Miramar have blocked the plan and won a definitive legal victory. Wal-Mart bought the building site in 2005, paying $10 million for 29 acres at Flamingo Road and Miramar Parkway. Area residents cited concerns about traffic and congestion for an already busy shopping hub, and the City Commission vetoed the project. Wal-Mart sued, lost and appealed. Broward Circuit Court Judge Robert Carney denied Wal-Mart’s request for appeal, ending the bid for a big box project.
