Warehouse District Condos, Fulton Street Developes into a destination?

     Fulton Street in the New Orleans Warehouse District is developing a destination of its own.  As more people are living and visiting the Warehouse District and Harrah’s Casino the area is going to develop further.  The area is growing because the demand is there from the local residents and the many tourist that visit the area.  There are several new additions to the area.  Ruth’s Chris Steak House recently announced its presence in Harrah’s Hotel.  Most of the locals know Ruth’s Chris started in New Orleans.                      

Harrahs and Fulton Street, New Orleans Warehouse District

      “The announcement comes just a few months after the official opening of the Fulton Street Mall, which is situated between the new Harrah’s Hotel and Gordon Birsch, a popular micro-brewery specializing in exotic-flavored beers and fine dining. The one-block-long mall has been closed to vehicular traffic and is fast emerging as a popular destination for casual strollers in the downtown area.”

      “Already open along the mall, in addition to Harrah’s Hotel and Gordon Birsch, are 528, an upscale music club featuring popular local musicians, and Riché, Chef Todd English’s latest restaurant. The mall offers numerous chairs and tables for those who like to dine and drink outdoors and fine artwork, including a series of bronze sculptures of old-time jazz musicians.”

     These are some photos I recently shot when the mall was turned into a Christmas Wonderland this past holiday season.  Right around the corner is another landmark that will get more traffic when people discover the Italian Plaza.  There will be no t-shirt shops in the area.  Lets see what happens over the next couple of years.
