Stirling Properties announces LOFT18, an interactive sports bar and lounge, is coming to Mandeville, Louisiana. Stirling Properties is serving as the brokerage representative for LOFT18 in its regional expansion efforts.

LOFT18, founded in New Orleans, Louisiana, is an innovative, interactive golf and multi-sport concept featuring custom-built, state-of-the-art Full Swing Golf simulators. It showcases games & championship courses to deliver precision play at its finest to golfers of all experience levels. And for non-golfers, LOFT18’s full-service bar and restaurant offers gastro-pub fare, craft beer and cocktails, and New Orleans’ famous service and hospitality.

This marks the third retail location for LOFT18. The company recently closed on the purchase of property located at the corner of St. Ann Drive and N. Causeway Blvd. (Hwy. 190 Frontage Road) in Mandeville to construct a ground-up 10,000-square-foot restaurant and bar with outdoor dining space. The new location will feature five simulators and one VIP room with a private simulator for parties of 20-30 people. The contractor on the development is Cassesi Scully Commercial Construction and the architect is Sizeler, Thompson & Brown Architects. Construction is expected to begin soon, with an anticipated opening in September-November 2022.

“We are thrilled to announce our newest LOFT18 location in Mandeville and to deliver the ultimate indoor golf, entertainment, and hospitality experience for the entire Northshore community,” said Greg Whitman, president/owner of LOFT18. “Mandeville’s vibrant, high-growth market is a perfect fit for LOFT18. We look forward to being a part of this community and serving its families, foodies, and, of course, golfers.”

Thomas Bryan and Lauren Ryan, commercial real estate advisors with Stirling Properties, represented LOFT18 in securing the location. “Lauren and I are very proud to represent Loft18 in their expansion efforts and are excited about their new location coming to the Northshore,” said Bryan. “LOFT18 was the first locally-owned golf simulation and entertainment concept in the New Orleans area, and they are setting the course for a unique entertainment and restaurant experience that will be highly successful in this market.”

The LOFT18 concept was dreamt-up by three long-time friends with backgrounds in entertainment, sales and hospitality and a fervent love for the game of golf. Seeing a niche in the hospitality industry, the group opened its first “flagship” location in Metairie in 2017 and its second location in Houston, Texas, in 2019. LOFT18 is currently working on expansion efforts in other major markets.

HOTWORX is heating up across the country


Early last year, Stirling Properties was selected to exclusively represent HOTWORX, a new-to-market fitness concept, in its aggressive expansion efforts across the U.S.

To date, Stirling Properties is excited to announce that 40 HOTWORX locations have been leased, and 50 more are expected by the end of the year. Our brokers are anticipating more than 100 new locations in the pipeline per year over the next five years!

Joe Gardner, CCIM, and Thomas Bryan, Stirling Properties’ Sales and Leasing Executives, are the exclusive national tenant rep brokers for HOTWORX. Utilizing the Retail Brokers Network (RBN) and the local knowledge of individual brokers across the country, this dynamic duo is working diligently to secure the perfect national retail locations for the new fitness concept—the ideal space required is between 1,500-2,500 square feet.

HOTWORX—founded in New Orleans, LA—is revolutionizing the fitness industry by providing the ultimate hot exercise experience and is the first to launch a 24/7 business franchise model through the use of its proprietary patent-pending technology. It is a virtually instructed exercise program created for users to experience the many benefits of infrared heat absorption, while completing a 30-minute isometric workout or 15-min high-intensity interval training (HIIT) session. As the infrared heat penetrates the body, the isometric postures further accelerate detoxification by physically removing toxins from organs through muscle contraction.


Currently, the company has locations in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. Future studio sites also include locations in the greater New Orleans area and surrounding Gulf Coast region. For a complete list of HOTWORX stores, click here.

“Our HOTWORX fitness concept is rapidly expanding. We are happy to continue our partnership with Stirling Properties, a proven leader in the real estate industry, to grow our business across the nation. We are still seeking franchisees for various business opportunities and will be announcing new HOTWORX locations soon,” said Stephen Smith, HOTWORX CEO.

“Stirling Properties is proud of our successful partnership with HOTWORX—a company that was founded right here in New Orleans. This unique concept is growing in popularity across the nation and is quickly becoming a leading fitness provider,” said Bryan. “Landlords and property owners are attracted to this type of tenant, not only for its ability to backfill empty retail space but also for its ability to drive traffic to neighboring stores. We look forward to announcing many more locations in communities across the U.S.”
