  • The Esplanade (Kenner, Louisiana)


    The Esplanade, also known as the Esplanade Mall, is a shopping mall in Kenner, Louisiana, United States anchored by Dillard's Clearance, 365 by Image, and Target. Former anchors included Macy's (the first Macy's in Louisiana). The mall opened in 1983 and was owned by the Simon Property Group, who acquired it through their merger with Mills Corporation in 2007. It is now managed by Pacific Management Group. The mall serves people throughout Kenner and surrounding areas. The mall was built and opened in 1983. The original owners were Cadillac Fairview. The Mills bought it in 2003 and planned to add new retail including two new anchors (Target and Bass Pro Shops), as well as a new movie theater, but the plan fell through as the Mills faced financial difficulties. Dillard's acquired the former D. H. Holmes in 1985, and opened a men's store in the mall after Godchaux's closed as an anchor in 1989. The mall closed in August 2005 after sustaining damage from Hurricane Katrina, reopening by October 2005. Macy's closed its store in the Esplanade, but re-opened in October 2008. Mervyn's closed at the mall in 2006 and sat vacant until 2010. In July 2010, it was announced that the Mervyn's building would be demolished. Since then, a single-storied Target has been built in its place. The new store officially opened July 24, 2011. In late 2011, Dillard's Men's Store closed, and in February 2012, the other Dillard's location was converted into a clearance center. Macy's closed again in 2017 as part of a nation-wide downsizing.
