NEW ORLEANS, LA – Today, Mayor Mitch Landrieu joined Stirling Properties to celebrate the grand opening of Mid-City Market, located at North Carrollton Avenue and Bienville Street in New Orleans. The 108,763 square-foot shopping center, anchored by a 54,390 square-foot Winn-Dixie, represents one the of the most significant retail developments in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina. This highly anticipated urban development brings new retailers to an established, historical neighborhood.

Mayor Landrieu commented that, “Mid-City Market is proof that New Orleans is building back better than before. This project took once blighted and vacant properties and transformed them into a retail and restaurant hub for the community. It’s another example of a strong public-private partnership delivering new jobs, new tax revenue and new energy to this important corridor. The project also will nicely complement the nearby Lafitte Greenway, the linear park that will link neighborhoods and spur activity and redevelopment across the city.”
Mid-City Market is a result of over $40 Million in private investment, illustrating Stirling’s continued commitment to the market. The center creates over 500 new jobs in the area. Mid-City Market was designed to complement and address the proposed Lafitte Greenway pedestrian and bicycle pathway that is scheduled to begin construction later this year and will border the shopping center.
“We have been diligently pursuing this development for the better part of 4 years. Completing this project is the culmination of a great deal of work by many people. It is extremely gratifying for us all to see the fruits of our labor, this project is very exciting for the future of the City of New Orleans and the Mid-City neighborhood,” states Townsend Underhill, Senior Vice President of Development at Stirling Properties.
To commemorate the Grand Opening, special guests Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Councilwoman Susan Guidry, and Winn-Dixie’s Regional Vice President Karena Niblett will attend. Stirling Properties’ President and CEO Marty Mayer and Senior Vice President of Development Townsend Underhill will address the audience at the event.
