Lake Charles has recently made headlines as a major growth leader in southwest Louisiana, driven by massive industrial projects. According to recent reports, Lake Charles’ economy grew 8.3%, the 3rd-fastest in the nation, and job growth and sales taxes are exceeding the national average. This progression is quickly attracting new retail developments and tenants to the market.

“Lake Charles is one of the hottest areas in the state with upwards of $80 billion in anticipated industrial projects driving significant growth and job opportunities,” said Citron. “This is an exciting time for progress, and we are starting to see major retailers taking notice. Stirling Properties is proud to be a part of that growth, and to have the opportunity to help bring quality retailers to the area.”
