2013 New Orleans Retail Report

The 2013 Retail Report provides an analysis of the overall retail market in Orleans Parish and “drills down” to offer details on key commercial corridors.*

Ready for Retail

The 2013 Retail Report sheds light on the tremendous retail growth occurring in New Orleans. The recent successful openings of retailers such as H&M, Tiffany & Co., Last Call Studio by Neiman Marcus, Armani Collezioni, J.Crew and Michael Kors are evidence that national retailers are recognizing the opportunities available in New Orleans.¬† Nearly 20 projects totaling more than 1.5 million square feet of new retail are currently under construction or planned for completion by the end of 2014. Game-changing projects such as Costco, Outlet Collection at Riverwalk, MidCity Market, South Market District, Algiers Plaza and Magnolia Marketplace reflect the surge in the region’s retail momentum.

*These corridors represent significant, but by no means all of the available retail opportunities in the city. In the next iteration of the study, we plan to showcase retail options in other corridors.
