The large number of Opportunity Zone locations in Greater New Orleans represent the next wave of investment for the region. By leveraging our existing anchors and current momentum, we can drive outside investment into our entire region. There are 150 federally designated OZs in Louisiana – 44 of them are in our 10-parish region, extending from Convent to Destrehan and Metairie as well as the Northshore.
They include major points of interest such as Lakeside Shopping Center, the Naval Support Activity in Algiers and the census tracts adjoining Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. Catalytic opportunities also exist near major employment hubs in New Orleans’ BioDistrict and Central Business District.
