New plans submitted by Walmart for downtown Green Bay store

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - New plans were submitted by Walmart officials to the city of Green Bay Monday for a store in the Broadway District.

Officials say the approximately 150,000 square foot store would be located on North Broadway, at the site of the former Larsen Green cannery. It is expected to bring about 300 jobs to the area.

According to a statement from Walmart, "The plans reflect the modifications we've made in response to the feedback we've received through our extensive due diligence efforts. We've made the building more square than rectangular and changed its position on the site so that it abuts Broadway and better aligns with the city's urban design guidelines, including design elements that make it more pedestrian friendly."

Green Bay's Redevelopment Authority voted last month to allow Walmart to continue talks with On Broadway, Inc. about developing that site. OBI is the group that owns the property.

However, the city council would have to approve rezoning that property. That means council members have the final say on if the store will be built.
