Buildings demolished to make way for Walmart Supercenter in Randallstown

October 04, 2011

The walls came tumbling down as long-vacant buildings were demolished Aug. 30 to make way for a new Walmart Supercenter in the Liberty Plaza shopping center in Randallstown.

According to a Baltimore County government news release, the 160,000-square-foot Walmart Supercenter will bring 350 new jobs to Randallstown and will include a full grocery, bakery, deli, pharmacy, and outdoor living department. The new building will replace a strip of long-vacant stores at the rear of the shopping center at Liberty and Brenbrook Roads. The store is scheduled to open in fall 2012.

"Walmart is a long-awaited addition to the heart of Randallstown's commercial corridor, complementing a mix of local businesses and national retailers such as Marshall's, Sonic and Home Depot," said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz in the news release. "Walmart's confidence in Randallstown will help spur other national stores and restaurants to take a fresh look at the Liberty Road corridor as a great place to do business."

"It's been a long wait, so it is especially gratifying to celebrate this milestone in the construction of the Randallstown Walmart," said Baltimore County Councilman Ken Oliver, who represents the 4th District, which includes Randallstown.

According to the release, 97 percent of construction and demolition debris will be recycled. Metal beams will be re-forged and stone will be crushed for use in other construction projects. Brick, block and other metals will be sorted and recycled, much like residential recycling.
