The Midtown Shopping Center will start its transformation into a multi-use building anchored by a Walmart Neighborhood Market by June, Bentonville city officials announced Friday. The one-level center just northwest of the Bentonville square on Second Street currently houses Harps Food Store, an art gallery and several offices.
The plan includes a three-level building with a 31,000-square foot Neighborhood Market, offices on the second and third levels and a three-level parking garage.
"The revitalization of the Midtown Shopping Center is a critical step to keep the city of Bentonville and its signature downtown square on a path of continued prosperity," said Mayor Bob McCaslin in a news release. "The new Midtown Center is a perfect fit for our community and embodies the values and history of our city, while adding shopping, office space and additional parking to accommodate Bentonville's increasingly popular downtown events."
