Stirling Properties will be developing a new full-service Walgreens drugstore in Metairie, Louisiana.
The proposed Walgreens is destined at the corner of Veterans Boulevard and Power Boulevard in the Barlon Plaza Shopping Center. The new store will be a ground-up relocation of the existing Walgreens that is currently within the center.
“This project is a culmination of many months of hard work and a strong partnership between Walgreens, the landowners, Stirling Properties, and Jefferson Parish. This is the way successful development projects should work”, Peter Aamodt, Vice President of Development for Stirling Properties.
The larger 14,000 square foot store will have a drive thru window, a full service pharmacy, and will serve as a catalyst for future development to help revitalize an aging shopping center and retail corridor. Construction on the Metairie store is slated to begin in July and open in the first quarter of 2015.
Stirling is providing pre-development services, including lease negotiation, permitting, financing, design, as well as construction and project management.
As a preferred developer for Walgreens, Stirling recently developed and opened new Walgreens stores on Magazine Street in New Orleans, Terry Parkway in Gretna, and Pass Road in Gulfport, Mississippi.
