NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A development company says a major outdoor sporting goods retailer is interested in anchoring an outlet mall that could be built at the site of the defunct Six Flags amusement park in New Orleans.
DAG Development chief executive David Garcia told CityBusiness of New Orleans (http://bit.ly/A1TIuT) that the big-box retailer is studying the possibility of a 200,000-square-foot store.
DAG is proposing the concept with Dallas-based Provident Realty Advisors. City officials are still deciding whether to proceed with the projects.
Several proposals have been raised in the past to redevelop the site. The amusement park was devastated by Hurricane Katrina and resulting flooding in 2005 and never reopened.
