Mayor Mitch Lan­drieu joined rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Stir­ling Prop­er­ties and JCH Devel­op­ment, and local offi­cials to cel­e­brate the start of con­struc­tion on Mag­no­lia Mar­ket­place, a $24.4 mil­lion shop­ping cen­ter that will fill a retail gap in the heart of Cen­tral City along the Clai­borne Avenue cor­ri­dor and cre­ate more than 200 full-time jobs.Located on 6.5 acres bounded by Clara Street, Wash­ing­ton Avenue, Toledano Street and Clai­borne Avenue, Mag­no­lia Mar­ket­place is expected to open in spring 2015 with ten­ants Ross Dress For Less, T.J.Maxx, Michaels, PetS­mart, Shoe Car­ni­val, ULTA Beauty and Rais­ing Cane’s.

The project is 100% pre-leased. Pre­vi­ously announced was the 6,000 square foot ini­tial phase of Mag­no­lia Mar­ket­place devel­op­ment located at the inter­sec­tion of South Clai­borne Avenue and Fourth Street. Cap­i­tal One Bank is cur­rently open in that build­ing. T‐Mobile and a pro­posed national sand­wich shop are slated to open in early 2014.

Mag­no­lia Mar­ket­place will cre­ate an esti­mated 344 con­struc­tion jobs and 217 per­ma­nent jobs.

Mag­no­lia Mar­ket­place will be a game-changer for increased qual­ity retail ameni­ties along the Clai­borne corridor—the vital life­line of our urban core,” said Rodrick T. Miller, Pres­i­dent and CEO of the New Orleans Busi­ness Alliance. “Our pub­lic pri­vate part­ner­ships to drive eco­nomic devel­op­ment in New Orleans are strong and effec­tive, and this project is a prime exam­ple of what is pos­si­ble as we antic­i­pate even more growth in 2014.”
