The first businesses in the new Mid-City Market should open in the next week, as vendors in the new complex at North Carrollton Avenue and Bienville Street put the finishing touches on their spaces.
Winn Dixie's 53,000-square-foot store will anchor the center. Other businesses include Pei Wei Asian Diner, Jefferson Feed, Felipe's Taqueria, Pinkberry, Office Depot, LA Nails, Panera Bread, an Ochsner clinic and Five Guys Burgers and Fries. Pizza Hut is expected to open June 17, according to Jordi Goodman, development associate for Stirling Properties.
Stirling Properties began turning over spaces in the Carrollton Avenue development in April and continued through May. All tenants now have access to their spaces except Winn Dixie, which Goodman said will happen the final week of this month. Three spaces are not yet leased.
Goodman said his company is negotiating with prospective tenants and promised a grand opening for the center in late July. — Marta Jewson, Mid-City Messenger
