McAlister Place is a pedestrian zone that runs through a section of Tulane University's uptown New Orleans campus.[1] Construction of the walkway began on May 18, 2009, and was completed in January 2010.[2] It replaced McAlister Drive, which was an asphalt-paved private road with one-way vehicular traffic and parking on both sides, running from Freret Street to Willow Street.[3]

The project is part of Tulane's commitment to and effort toward environmental sustainability. The Freeman School of Business's trading room and the Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life overlook the newly completed McAlister Place.
