The approval of Wal-mart's plat has cleared the way for ground to be broken at the new retail site and signals the kickoff of rapid commercial expansion in Cibolo. A community experiencing explosive growth in the past decade, Cibolo has recently garnered several significant economic winds in the past year. In addition to Wal-mart, Cibolo Market Place LLC has announced plans for a new retail center — the Cibolo Market Place. The 20,000-square-foot center will be located at 701 N. Main Street, in Cibolo.
The Market Place will bring several new retail options and other services to this growing city, Mark Luft, economic development director for the city of Cibolo, told the San Antonio Business Journal. “This is welcome news in Cibolo and another great example of Cibolo’s ongoing job creation and economic development activities,” he says.
Wal-mart will begin construction on the center during the third quarter of 2014, and H-E-B will begin construction on a new store in early 2015. The plat below shows information about the area under development.
