Client – Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. & Water Tower Development LLC

The scope of the project included an on-site relocation of a 128,000 s.f. Walmart store and a new 204,000 s.f. Walmart Supercenter was constructed adjacent to the existing Walmart store in Arnold, MO.  The new store construction consisted of complete removal and replacement of the existing parking lot and associated utilities.  The project included several complicated phases which allowed the Walmart stores to remain open every day during the duration of the project.  The new store opened the day after the existing store closed.  The parking lot for the adjacent Church of Christ was relocated to make room for the new Walmart building and parking lot.  The reconstruction of the church parking lot included the construction of a 30-foot tall modular block retaining wall.

The project also included two Strip Retail Outlot Developments adjacent to Walmart.  The Market at Water Tower Place contains Shoe Carnival, Visionworks, OrangeLeaf, SportClips, and Five Guys.  Our Architecture department designed the second phase which currently includes McAlister’s Deli and AT&T.  Cochran performed all of the civil design for the entire complex projects.
