Now open: Fremaux Town Center in Slidell, La.
Covington, La. And Chattanooga, Tenn. — Phase I of Fremaux Town Center in Slidell, La., opened on Friday, according to the property’s joint developers Stirling Properties and CBL & Associates Properties.
Kohl’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Best Buy and T.J.Maxx anchor the 352,342-sq.-ft. center, which is more than 95% leased.
Slidell is the largest municipality in St. Tammany Parish on the northern shore of Lake Pontchartrain near the city of New Orleans. The area has experienced significant growth since Hurricane Katrina. Located at the major intersection of Interstate 10 and Fremaux Avenue, the town center may grow into a regional destination.
Phase II of Fremaux Town Center, anchored by Dillard’s, will commence construction later this year.
Stirling and CBL also announced a contribution of $10,000 to Keep Slidell Beautiful in honor the center’s Grand Opening. The contribution will fund the construction of signage welcoming visitors to the City of Slidell as they head west on Fremaux Avenue from Interstate 12. The signage and accompanying landscaping will set the benchmark for future entrance signage throughout the city.
