New Orleans — O’Connor Capital Partners, a New York-based real estate investment and management firm, has acquired The Shops at Canal Place, a 260,000-square-foot shopping center located at the foot of Canal Street and the Mississippi River in New Orleans.
O’Connor Capital purchased the property from an affiliate of two New Orleans-based companies, The Berger Co. and Ogden Development, for an undisclosed price. The Shops at Canal Place was 96 percent leased at the time of sale to tenants such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany’s, Armani Collezioni, L’Occitane, Michael Kors, lululemon athletica, Anthropologie, Brooks Brothers, J. Crew and Banana Republic.
The shopping center also features the nine-screen Theatres at Canal Place, Chef Adolfo Garcia’s Gusto Cafe and Bar and a 1,600-space parking garage, which the seller will retain. Peter Bergner and Kate Gilbert of O’Connor Capital Partners’ Palm Beach office will be responsible for leasing the property.
