NEW ORLEANS -- The names of over five dozen retailers heading to the Riverwalk outlet mall next summer were released Monday.

It's the first outlet mall in the downtown area.

The Howard Hughes Corporation bought the mall in 2011. They are undertaking the first major redevelopment of the Riverwalk since it opened in 1986.

The mall is closed right now for interior demolition and expansion work, but 94 percent of the mall has already been leased out.

Cruise ship passengers make up a large part of the stores' business, since the Riverwalk is so close to the cruise ship terminals. Developers say the mall is a way to drive more locals to spend their money in Orleans Parish.

'We are part of a major movement across the city where retailers are discovering the city. About two and a half years ago, we had a lot of resistance from retailers. There was a lot of work involved, and two and half years of talking to the point that retailers are asking why not New Orleans,' Mark Bulmash, senior vice president of development, Howard Hughes Corp.

Some of the big stores coming to the mall include Last Call by Neiman Marcus, Coach Factory Store, Guess Factory Store, and Kenneth Cole Factory Store.

If you are worried about parking, developers say there will be 3,000 nearby parking spots available nearby at discounted rates.
