A 63,000-square-foot former Jewel-Osco store in Wauwatosa that will be remodeled for a Walmart supermarket and other retailers has been sold for $5.1 million to an investors group.

The building, at 3850 N. 124th St., was sold by ASP Realty Inc., a subsidiary of Jewel-Osco's corporate parent, Supervalu Inc., to Capitol 124 LLC, according to documents filed with the Milwaukee County register of deeds.

Wauwatosa city officials earlier this year approved plans for a 38,000-square-foot Walmart Neighborhood Market at that location. Gatlin Development Co., which is developing the building, will seek other retailers for the remaining space.

I contacted a Walmart spokeswoman to find out when the supermarket will open but haven't heard back yet. 

Also, the 17.2-acre Green Fields Golf Center driving range and miniature golf course, east of S. 108th St. and just north of W. Layton Ave., Greenfield, has been sold to Walmart Real Estate Business Trust for $7.4 million, according to the register of deeds.

A 140,000-square-foot Walmart supermarket and discount store is being developed at that site, which is just south of an existing Walmart, at 4500 S. 108th St.

Walmart will look for new uses for the old store once the new one is completed. The project should take about a year to complete.

By the way, the driving range at Green Fields is closed, but the mini golf course is open until Sept. 16.
