McAlister Place, New Orleans
McAlister Place is a pedestrian mall that runs through a section of Tulane University's Uptown New Orleans campus. Construction of the mall began on May 18, 2009, and was completed in January 2010. The mall 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. 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.
