The RiverWalk Is Coming Back

What would it take to get you to drive downtown to go shopping at the RiverWalk? From what I heard, it would boil down to retailer selection and accessible parking. The RiverWalk downtown is a sad memory from the Pelican Brief, as Julia Roberts is running through Spanish Plaza from a gun man, you see how booming they made it look. My older friends would tell me stories about how it was the place to be and shopping was incredible. Over the years the decline in the economy and increase in e-commerce has made the RiverWalk look like a scary dungeon with flea market style vendors. The majority of the major brands have stepped out and there are no major restaurants.

Ok, enough of the Debbie Downer portion. As you might have heard, the RiverWalk is getting a facelift and updated name. Soon to be the Outlet Collection RiverWalk, the renovated mall will feature 75 brand names and restaurants that you would expect to see in a city that is known for its food. The RiverWalk is linked up to the Port New Orleans and you hope that tourist would get the best first impression when stepping off the boat. This renovation will ensure that and hopefully entice locals back downtown to shop. People want to make sure their time is well spent and a trip to downtown New Orleans for a couple stores isn’t worth it. After the re-opening in 2014, we can expect people to make an entire day of shopping, eating, and sightseeing.

The Riverwalk  is within walking distance from most Warehouse District Condos, see new listings below.
