Groundbreaking Ceremony of Walmart Supercenter on Cascade Road Scheduled for Monday, October 15
Opening of Supercenter Will Provide Jobs and Economic Boost to Fulton County
The new Walmart Supercenter at Cascade Road in Southwest Atlanta will bring the convenience of affordably-priced, quality products and groceries to this growing community of businesses and homes. The store will employ approximately 300 full- and part-time associates.
The Supercenter will be developed on a site formerly occupied by a major home improvement chain and constructed in compliance with zoning requirements. It will incorporate design and architecture that reflect neighborhood standards that meet the City of Atlanta and Fulton County’s site building standards.
An aesthetically-appealing streetscape will be developed along Research Center Atlanta Drive. The planned design and architecture are in accordance with neighborhood standards established by the Cascade Overlay and will exceed several requirements, including expansive trees and plantings, and no outdoor storage and sales.
