Mid-City Market is closer to completion

Have you driven down North Carrollton Avenue lately? Progress on the Mid-City Market may blow you away -- a site dubbed one of the last Katrina eyesores is rapidly taking shape.

"This is pretty much the last blighted property in Mid-City and everyone is excited about it," said construction site supervisor Matt Weeks.

Weeks says construction is under way on five individual buildings. You can see the layout of the long-anticipated Mid-City Market, anchored by Winn Dixie and including Panera Bread, Five Guys Hamburgers, Ochsner, Pinkberry and Felipe's.

"I watch it every day," said Rachel Favaloro, looking through the window at the progress across the street.  "They were driving pilings for a long time and things are going up now. Walls are coming together."

Weeks says the front sections will include Pei Wei, Jefferson Feed, Pizza Hut, and Office Depot.

"We'll start turning over completion for shell spaces in the beginning of April," Weeks said.

"I'm excited. It's a bunch of food places and there are more places we can shop, right down the street from school," said Xavier student Chante Jones.

Stirling Properties owns the new development. Retailers are slated to open their doors for business by August.
