The 41,000-square-foot grocer opened Wednesday, along with a gas station and Walmart-to-go convenience store, at the corner of Nolte and Canoe Creek roads in St. Cloud.
Joyce Development had paid just under $1.2 million last June for the Walmart site. The new owner is Orlando shopping center developer Karam Duggal, who bought the property through an affiliate company as a long-term investment.
The city is in the process of replatting the remaining 10 acres of the retail site into seven parcels -- five of which are already under contract.
"We expect excitement and more activity generated by the opening of the Walmart Neighborhood Market store," listing broker Veronica Malolos told GrowthSpotter.
She said Joyce Development has contracts to buy lots No. 3, 6 and 7. They are currently in due diligence and scheduled to close June 30.
ARCTRUST, a New Jersey-based REIT that has been buying up retail and fast-food restaurants around Orlando, is under contract for lots No. 1 and 2.
The city-owned planned development features a mix of residential uses, public parks and its own corporate park, which is home to the St. Cloud Preparatory School.
The city is also in negotiations for a potential charter high school at Stevens Plantation.
