Walmart to East Point
This tree is about to fall, and so are the prices. Walmart is headed to East Point with the help of Ledbetter Properties—the first significant retail development in the Camp Creek area since North American Properties established Camp Creek Marketplace nearly a decade ago. Ledbetter's Wright Ledbetter says Walmart actually instigated the interest in the area. His firm will start demolishing a condemned duplex and will develop the 164k SF Super Walmart along with 20k SF of other retail and four potential outparcels. "We have interest in almost all of it," he says, including two LOIs for the retail space. Wright concedes that the retailer interest in the project is because of Walmart: "They were the catalyst."
