New villas will soon be built at Walmart’s massive Mexican store in Rodeo Las Palmas, Mexico, where the mega-retailer plans to build a large superstore.
The project is set to become a major tourist attraction as it features a large glass facade, with a roof that extends to the sky and a large skybridge.
Walmart’s Mexican store, located in the resort town of Mexicali, is expected to be completed by the end of 2019, with plans to expand it to include an additional 600,000 sq. ft. of space.
“The building is a world class hotel that will be a unique experience in Mexico,” said Miguel Salazar, president of Walmart Mexico.
The villas, which will be built in phases, will be named in honor of the Mexican national hero Enrique Peña Nieto, who was elected president of Mexico in 2016 and who is expected back in the presidency in 2019.
They are expected to sell for $6 million (about £4.7 million) each.
The new villas are being built on land that has been donated by Walmart for the development of its Mexican stores.
The new store, which has been in development for about five years, is the first to include a hotel and villa suites, a dining area and a bar.
It will also include a rooftop bar.
Walmart is building a $2.2 billion (US$2.5 billion) store in El Paso, Texas, that will open in 2019 and will feature an indoor and outdoor plaza, an outdoor terrace and a shopping center.
