THE NATION’S FIRST DOWNTOWN OUTLET CENTER
The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk opened in New Orleans in 2014 as the nation’s first outlet center in a downtown environment. Following a transformative redevelopment of the iconic property, The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk is fully leased with national brands and local favorites.
The property provides a compelling shopping experience for the growing population and is ideally situated to attract the large numbers visiting New Orleans. At the base of Canal, Poydras and Julia Streets, The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk sits next to the recently renovated Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, the cruise terminals of the Port of New Orleans, the Hilton Riverside Hotel, Spanish Plaza, Aquarium of the Americas, IMAX Theatre, Woldenberg Park and Harrah’s Casino. It is just steps away from the French Quarter with easy access to virtually every hotel in the area, making it a must-visit destination.
In addition to being the nation’s first downtown outlet destination, The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk is also the first location in the region for a number of tenants such as Neiman Marcus Last Call Studio, Nordstrom Rack, Tommy Bahama Outlet and PUMA Outlet. The repositioning of the former Riverwalk Marketplace included a complete redevelopment and a significant expansion of approximately 50,000 square feet, bringing the total to 250,000 square feet of much-needed retail space in New Orleans.
