New Orleans - CBD: Riverwalk Marketplace

Riverwalk Marketplace, an upscale mall stretching along the Mississippi River waterfront stretching from the base of Canal Street upriver to the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, was constructed on the site of 1984 World's Fair. The area along the riverfront was long devoted to shipping. By the start of the 1980s, increased use of containers in shipping made some of the older riverfront wharfs less useful, so the Poydras Street Wharf and the Julia Street Wharf were demolished, and the land was used as part of the fair.
