Rendering of what the Aspen Hill Walmart would have looked like

It has been nearly 10 years since Walmart officially abandoned its plans to open a store in Aspen Hill. The retail giant was intending to build a 118,000-square-foot store with expanded grocery offerings on the site of the vacant BAE/Vitro office building at 4115 Aspen Hill Road, touting the creation of nearly 300 jobs.  The nearly 10-acre Aspen Hill property included a 262,000-square-foot office building that was vacant since 2010. In 2019 it was purchased by Kaiser for a future Medical Center that was originally planned to open in 2022. The pandemic halted those plans, and we are still awaiting the next move by Kaiser.
