New Orleans Riverwalk
The New Orleans Riverwalk is set to undergo the first major renovation since the 1980s and it’s going to be a huge change to the local shopping landscape. While we have the market cornered on funky and fun local shopping, there’s been a gap in the presence of higher end, national retailers. That will all change in 2013, when the Riverwalk is converted to an upscale outlet center.
The list of tenants has yet to be released, but the developer has said that many of them will be opening their first Louisiana location – a coup for the city when most shopping has been relegated to the suburbs. The location puts the center in walking distance for most visitors and the ample parking between the convention center and the Hilton should make it easy for residents to get in and out as well.
This should be a great addition to the list of things to do in New Orleans.
