Retail Opportunity
The Opportunity

Billions of new investment dollars are flowing into New Orleans, leveraging the city’s historic past to create a diverse, unique, dynamic downtown that is experiencing explosive growth. As the economic and cultural center for the region and a destination for millions of tourists each year, downtown New Orleans is transforming into one of the premier shopping and entertainment districts in the country.

The South Market District is a mixed-use, transit-oriented development in the heart of the historic downtown core, combining luxury apartments with retail, restaurants, and entertainment venues. South Market encompasses a five-block area that represents the best retail opportunity in New Orleans — located across Loyola Avenue from the Superdome and New Orleans Arena, the site connects the Central Business District, historic Warehouse/Arts District, and the Sports Entertainment District.
