Boasting a population of just over 1,100,000, New Orleans is perhaps best known for its love of good food and great music. But more than that, the Greater New Orleans area is the hub of commerce for the majority of Southern Louisiana. Whether it’s a job at the ports, with gas and oil magnates, or a service industry, people commute from north and south to make their living in this expansive community. And when the day is done, they head home and spend their hard-earned dollars in their local communities. Covington Commons is poised to capitalize on this revenue stream, being centrally located just beyond the junctions of I-10, I-12 and a number of smaller highways which service the communities across the lake from New Orleans known locally as “The Northshore”.
