NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The Esplanade's new owner says it's possible people will eventually live at the site of the mall.
Pacific Retail Capital Partners announced Sept. 19 it's taking over operations of the Kenner shopping center.
The company says it may explore bringing new development to the site. It notes other malls have found success incorporating housing on land surrounding shopping centers. It also notes The Esplanade may be a good candidate for that type of development because of the mall's expansive parking lots.
So far, there are no definitive plans to follow through with new development.
