New Orleans Riverwalk to receive $70 million redevelopment as outlet mall


@NOLAnews: Riverwalk to receive $70 million redevelopment as outlet mall LINK

"The Howard Hughes Corp. announced Thursday it is spending $70 million to redevelop the Riverwalk Marketplace in New Orleans as an upscale outlet center. The new venture will be called The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk, according to a statement issued by the company.

The mall's footprint will be expanded by 50,000 square feet to a total of 250,000 square feet. It will showcase top retailers with outlet stores as well as local retail, dining and entertainment venues. The company says it will be the first outlet center located in a major metropolitan downtown setting.

"Our leadership team is committed to being a part of New Orleans' continued revitalization and look forward to bringing a dynamic new concept to this vibrant, charismatic city," said Mark Bulmash, Senior Vice President of Development for The Howard Hughes Corporation.

"This planned redevelopment proposes a new tenant mix that will restore Riverwalk as a favorite place to shop for tourists and locals alike and is another step in making New Orleans a regional shopping destination," said New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu.

The company, which bought the property in 2011, noted that the mall was not updated by its previous owners since its grand opening in 1986. Construction is expected to begin later this year with a projected reopening in late 2013."

I wonder how much they'll jack up parking costs for the lot.

I agree, but I can see why they're redeveloping the Riverwalk. It's a huge corridor for crowds moving to and from the Convention Center.

I guess it will also help with the cruise line business. I jog by there all the time. I just get frustrated with the crap on Canal St. Venting.


I'm 32 and would love to see the Canal St. my parents talk about.

Agreed. But if they do it right this could be a positive development for the CBD. Hell I work 2 blocks from the Riverwalk and I forget it's even there.

Hopefully "local retailers" means something other than some garbage "Cajun Voodoo Shops." I would love to see some high-end outlets that would bring in money for the local economy rather than those same dollars being spent in Alabama or Florida.
