Mid-City Market

VergesRome Architects developed site and retail concepts for Stirling Properties for a shopping center situated along the proposed Lafitte Greenway bicycle corridor in Mid-City, and extending to the corner of Bienville Street and North Carrollton Avenue. The center features a 53,000SF Winn-Dixie grocery store at the rear of a parcel of property that was an area of blight for several years.

The site planning and conceptual design process took place with the full participation and input of neighborhood groups such as the Mid-City Neighborhood Organization, and the Friends of the Lafitte Corridor. Residents, future greenway users, and local merchants understand the attraction the centrally located shopping area will have for neighbors living, working, and going to school in the area. At the same time, the opportunity for the Mid City Market to be a unique urban redevelopment project created considerable excitement and anticipation.
