New Orleans’ Lakefront prime for a wave of development

Local real estate expert, Wade Ragas, says the Lakefront, from east of Elysian Fields as far east Little Woods, has long been an overlooked and underdeveloped asset. “There’s only so much waterfront available in the New Orleans area,” says Ragas. “And, for a variety of

Now, it appears the opportunity to restore the lakefront as a major recreation destination is being grasped by a number of developers and individuals. “We’re beginning to see more in the way of restaurants, but not, necessarily the exact old site of West End where there’s more storm surge risk,” Ragas say
