Walgreens to open on New Orleans Westbank

Covington, La. -- Stirling Properties said Tuesday it plans to develop a full-service Walgreens drug store in Terrytown, La., on the Westbank of New Orleans.

The proposed Walgreens, which will be a relocation of an existing nearby store, will be located on the site of a former A&P Grocery/Eckerd Drug-anchored shopping center.  

The larger 17,384-sq.-ft. store will have a drive thru window and full service pharmacy and will serve as a catalyst for future development to help revitalize an aging retail corridor. Construction on the Terrytown store is slated to begin in April and open in the fourth quarter of 2013. Stirling is providing pre-development services, including lease negotiation, permitting, financing, design, as well as construction and project management.
