How long has the site been vacant?

Walmart vacated the Walmart Supercenter (originally Hypermart) in May 2008.  In December 2009, Walmart sold the property to a Limited Partnership in a conveyance that included 25-year deed restrictions.  The property was then sold to a developer who unsuccessfully sought to have the property zoned to allow for mini-warehouse storage.  That developer eventually offered the property to the City, which purchased it for below its market-appraised value in 2017.
