Earlier today Stirling Properties celebrated the opening of the new full-service Walgreens drugstore in Terrytown on the Westbank of New Orleans. The celebration was commemorated with a ceremonial cutting of the ribbon by Jefferson Parish Councilman Ricky Templet, Walgreens Representative Bill Hagoort and Stirling Properties Vice President of Development, Peter Aamodt. The Walgreens is located at the intersection of Terry Parkway and Carol Sue Avenue on the site of the former A&P Grocery/Eckerd Drug anchored shopping center.
“This project represents a cooperative effort between Stirling Properties and Jefferson Parish to bring back a distressed commercial property to prominence once again as a viable retail corner that will serve the people of Terrytown”, said Peter Aamodt, Vice President of Development for Stirling Properties.
The larger 17,384 square foot store has a drive thru window and full service pharmacy and will serve as a catalyst for future development to help revitalize an aging retail corridor. Stirling provided pre-development services, including lease negotiation, permitting, financing, design, as well as construction and project management.
As a preferred developer for the Walgreens Company in the Gulf South, Stirling Properties has had a long-standing relationship with the retailer. Last year Stirling completed a full renovation of the former Ed Brauner American Legion Post #307 to a 13,000 square-foot Walgreens Marquee store. Another approved Walgreens site, currently in the early stages of development, is at the intersection of Veterans Memorial Boulevard and Power Boulevard in Metairie, La.
