Shopping Center Near Lakeside Gets a New Name
METAIRIE – Say goodbye to the Vieux Carre Shopping Center and hello to the Shops on Seventeenth.
The owners of the 20,172-square-foot retail strip at the corner of Severn Avenue and 17th Street (across from La Madeleine) celebrated the new name at a May 5 event that attracted local economic development officials and elected representatives.
Owned and operated by the Feil Organization, the New York City-based real estate firm that also owns Lakeside Shopping Center, the Shops on Seventeenth recently welcomed two new tenants. The Weekend Salon (3,233 square feet) and Purple Tiger (2,076 square feet) have joined Blink, Christine’s, Salon Callidora, Hollingsworth Design and Vision Optique.
The Feil Organization purchased the property in 2018. Lakeside’s management and leasing team is now calling the shots.
The Feil Organization owns and operates a nationwide portfolio of more than 26 million square feet of retail and commercial space, and more than 5,000 residential rental units. The firm has regional offices in Chicago, New Orleans and St. Petersburg, Fla.
