More Details Released on Columbia’s CBD Wal-Mart


Twenty-four-hour shopping at Walmart, three junior anchor tenants, up to a dozen smaller shops and restaurants, underground parking, more than 300 bike racks, 774 parking spaces and a stream with pedestrian and bicycle-friendly walkways would be among the features of a proposed shopping center along Assembly Street near downtown Columbia, a developer said Thursday.

If City Council approves the 23-acre project and necessary permits are granted, construction on the $35 million project could begin as early as mid-2013, said Matt Sasser of Bright-Meyers, an Atlanta-based Wal-Mart development partner. The center would be built on the old city-owned Capital City Stadium baseball park and adjoining parcels.

The shopping center could open as early as mid-2014, Sasser said, in sharing site plans for the project with The State newspaper on Thursday.
