NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans' lakefront residents will watch a neighborhood eyesore come down March 16.

The City of New Orleans says demolition crews are set to begin work at the former Lake Terrace Shopping Center. The property located at the intersection of Robert E. Lee Blvd. and Paris Ave. has been vacant since hurricane Katrina flooded it in 2005.

The site's new owner plans to begin construction of a new commercial development within six months. The new shopping center will include a First NBC Bank branch and approximately 6,500 square feet of general retail space.
