Proposed Greendale Walmart wins zoning approval

Published on: 6/22/2011

A Walmart supermarket-discount store proposed for the former U.S. Bowling Congress site, in Greendale, won zoning approval from the Village Board Tuesday night.

The 93,000-square-foot store, valued at $10 million, will be on S. 76th St., just across from Southridge Mall. The former Bowling Congress offices will be razed to make way for the new store, which was approved on a 7-0 vote.

Construction could begin on the store, which will include a pharmacy, by late summer, said company spokeswoman Lisa Nelson.

The Greendale store becomes the latest in a series of Walmarts proposed for the Milwaukee area to obtain zoning approval. The list included stores in Milwaukee, Wauwatosa and Menomonee Falls.

Also, Walmart just last week disclosed plans for a store in West Milwaukee.

The Greendale Walmart is among new developments happening in and around Southridge, including a $52.5 million mall renovation that will feature a Macy's department store anchor.
