Stirling Properties commercial real estate company is pleased to announce that The Home Depot is coming to Hammond, Louisiana, as part of the Hammond Square redevelopment. This will mark the first Tangipahoa Parish location for the long-awaited home improvement retailer.
The Home Depot closed on the acquisition of 9.65 acres of property located on the corner of West Minnesota Park Road and South Magnolia Street on the north side of the shopping center. Construction on the site is anticipated to commence by the end of the year. The store will occupy roughly 106,000 square feet of space with an adjoining 28,000-square-foot garden center, and is expected to open in 2017.
“We are excited that The Home Depot has chosen Hammond,” said City of Hammond Mayor Pete Panepinto. “The Home Depot brings more jobs and consumer choices that are critical to Hammond’s continued growth.”
The Home Depot is the world’s largest home improvement retailer with nearly 400,000 associates and more than 2,200 stores in the US, Canada and Mexico. The Home Depot at Hammond Square will offer a one-stop shop for do-it-yourselfers and professional contractors, with more than 35,000 products in store and 1 million products online.
“Stirling Properties is thrilled to welcome The Home Depot to Hammond Square and to the Hammond retail market,” said Grady Brame, Executive Vice President at Stirling Properties. “The Home Depot was one of the first retailers we targeted when we decided to redevelop the mall back in 2006. This addition has been a long time coming and we are happy to see it finally come to fruition.”
